This is the third year in a row that Clanmil’s social impact has been recognised at the Social Enterprise Awards.The association took the top spot for Social Impact in both 2016 and 2017.
Tim O’Malley, Community Development Manager at Clanmil said “At Clanmil, we are committed to focusing our resources where they will have the most social impact for tenants, for the neighbourhoods where we have homes and for the communities where we work.
“From employability programmes to money advice, our work on Shared Neighbourhoods and our Community Development Programmes, our staff, tenants and tenant associations work together to create communities and put social value at the heart of what we do.
“We are absolutely delighted to have this work recognised at the Social Enterprise Awards for the third year running.”
