On Friday night, Glasgow was the venue for a celebration of excellence, passion and commitment to the Scottish housing sector as nearly 500 housing professionals gathered for the Scotland Housing Awards 2023. The awards, run by the Chartered Institute of Housing (CIH) in Scotland, were an opportunity to shine a light on the creativity, innovation and dedication of those individuals, teams and organisations that deliver vital services and support to communities throughout the nation.
