Our 2022 Values in Practice (VIP) Award winners!

Congratulations to all our winners and nominees.


Our annual Values in Practice (VIP) awards say thank you to members, tenants, employees, and residents who make a real difference in our communities. This year's ceremony was held online on Thursday 27th January 2022 with eleven awards up for grabs.

Huge congratulations to everyone who was nominated and shortlisted. You can and should be really proud of your achievements. All of the stories we heard on Thursday night about the contributions of tenants, employees, and teams demonstrate the real sense of family that I know we have within both RBH and our communities.

I was surprised and amazed to have been nominated – I am thrilled to bits to win especially as the other nominees were wonderful.

Beryl Hudson Community Volunteer of the Year (and Chief Executive's Choice)

One of the most difficult tasks I have every year is to choose the "Chief Executive's Choice" award winner from an amazing group of category winners. This year I chose Beryl Hudson, who was also named Community Volunteer of the Year. The pandemic restrictions have been particularly challenging for residents in our Independent Living Schemes, and Beryl's dedication to her neighbours is a real inspiration.
