Homes for good scoop second award

Scottish letting agency, Homes for Good, scooped its second social enterprise award at the Scottish business awards on Thursday evening.

The Glasgow-based firm has been recognised for its ongoing commitment to placing ethics and social change at the centre of its business model after being named Social Enterprise of the Year, just a week after winning the same accolade at the Scottish Social Enterprise Awards.

Homes for Good operates as a social business, offering a property service to landlords while also reinvesting all profits into helping vulnerable tenants.

Founded in March 2013 Homes for Good currently manages around 280 properties across the West of Scotland and the Central Belt.

Director of Homes for Good, Susan Aktemel, said: "This has been a surreal couple of weeks and I think we’re still in shock about winning both awards. Again, I would like to thank my team for their hard work and dedication, our board and our investors without which none of this would be possible. This is a great way to round off the year for us as an organisation.

"We’ve got an ambitious growth plan over the next few years and want to expand our portfolio and services across Glasgow city. We look forward to working with more landlords to provide high quality properties to our customers."

The awards, held at the EICC in Edinburgh, with Leonardo DiCaprio as the Keynote Speaker, presented a total of 15 awards to the business community.
