The Housing for Older People Awards 2021

May 2021 (date under review)

A “live” online event

Celebrate specialist Housing for Later Life by participating in EAC’s 9th annual Awards

Residents of all forms of retirement housing can nominate their schemes, and so can their visitors, staff and volunteers.

Last year a record number of 18,996 individuals took part in the nomination process, voting for 1,220 housing schemes. We hope to improve on this magnificent result.

The timetable of the 2021 Awards is (all dates now under review)

  • 15 February 2021 voting starts
  • 23 April 2021 voting ends
  • 3 May 2021: announcement of the regional winners and of the national finalists
  • 19 May 2021 (date tbc) the Awards celebrations “live” online; announcement of the national winners and of the National Heroes

From 15th February 2021 to 26th April 2021, you will be able to vote directly online, or to ask someone to do it for you. Participation is free of charge. See more about voting and selection process HERE

The addition of Regional awards to the National awards, trialled in 2019, has proved very popular. It will again be a major feature of the 2021 Awards
