A WESTON housing group has been nominated in a national awards scheme for its work to improve the lives of people in the community.

Knightsone Housing has been shortlisted for the UK Housing Awards 2014, which recognise ‘outstanding work by housing organisations’.

The firm is one of six in the running for the Business Transformation award for its programme, Take On The Future.

The awards are organised by the Chartered Institute of Housing and Inside House magazine and this year will mark its 18th annual ceremony, to be held in London in April.

Nick Horne, chief executive of Knightstone, said: “Take On The Future was a major change programme that was truly ambitious in ambition, scope and execution.
