Landlords Award Ceremony supports Roundabout

Roundabout  recently received £165.42 from Sheffield City Council’s Private Housing Standards Department!

The department recently held The Sheffield City Council Landlords Awards 2017 – a ceremony aiming to celebrate landlords throughout the city. This event was organised with the help of Sheffield City Council’s Private Housing Standards Department.

The aim of Private Housing Standards is to encourage high standards of accommodation, repair and good management in the private rented sector.  Where properties fall below this level and are not safe, they enforce legal standards that apply.

Additionally, they work with landlords and agents to promote good business and high standards of properties. As part of this, they held the Awards Ceremony to celebrate landlords that understand the value of excellent business and property and provide high quality, safe rented homes in Sheffield.

They decided to hold a raffle at the event and had prizes from The Copthorne Hotel, Owlerton Stadium, Marco’s, Sheffield United, Sheffield Wednesday, Mosborough Hall Hotel, St Pauls Hotel and more! They  split the money raised between Roundabout and one of the Lord Mayor’s charities.

“We picked Roundabout because of the kind of work we both do as organisations,” explains Fiona Wain, from Sheffield City Council’s Private Housing Standards Department.

“We wanted a charity that was helping to house people and Roundabout strives to reduce homelessness in the city.”
