Bramlings House supports single young people aged 16-24
The awards celebrate excellence and best practice across the housing sector, as well as volunteers, housing staff and contractors who bring lasting change to communities across England.

Bramlings House, based in Newbury, West Berkshire, is a 27-bed scheme that supports single young people aged 16-24, as well as young parents with babies. People can live at the facility for up to two years.

The team provides a safe and nurturing environment to support residents as they develop the life skills need to move on to privately rented accommodation or social housing.

Announcing the winner in the Excellence in Engagement in Support and Care category, host Gavin Oattes said the award: “recognises supported housing and care providers who are successfully engaging with or involving their service users… creating innovative, practical but ultimately person-centred approaches to support people in various stages and aspects of their lives”.

Jo Evans, Director of Supported Housing at A2Dominion, said the award was a fitting reward for the “incredible work the staff at Bramlings House do every day”.

“I couldn’t be prouder of the whole team who make such a huge difference to young people and families’ lives with everything they do,” she continued. “And while it’s right we celebrate this particular win for Bramlings House, I also want to pay tribute to every single one of our 240 supported living staff who work so hard for the 2,500 people currently living in our supported housing accommodation. They’re all winners in my eyes.”
