ACH announced as Top 50 Social Landlord

Each year 24housing Magazine publishes a list of the Top 50 Social Landlords, reflecting those committed to making good-quality service a priority and taking resident concerns seriously.

And this year ACH were honoured to be featured, amongst an outstanding group of fellow housing organisations. This is the first time we've featured in this list, and we would like to thank our hardworking staff teams in Bristol, Birmingham and Wolverhampton, and our tenants - whom we are committed to offer an ever-improving service of housing, career advice, training and employment opportunities.

The summary written about us in the magazine said:

ACH’s vision is for all refugees coming to the UK to be successfully integrated into society. It sees sustainable employment as key to this, and in 2014 set up a training subsidiary, Himilo, to upskill tenants.   

Himilo now provides career advice, training and support to 2,500 people in the West of England and the West Midlands each year to help them access jobs and build careers.  The team see nearly 200 individuals per month, with 61% achieving a job or learning outcome. 

ACH has also run a successful #rethinkingrefugee campaign, which promotes a positive message of refugees as assets to businesses and communities.
