Tayport Wins Gold at National Awards!
Date Posted: 18th of May 2017
We are delighted this morning to announce that Servite House in Tayport has won a Gold Award at the Elderly Accommodation Counsel (EAC) Awards 2017.
Servite House in Tayport is one of 32 to have won a top prize out of the almost 25,000 retirement housing schemes or developments nationwide.
The awards, now in their 7th year, celebrate the best specialist housing for older people, and aim to help shape the future of housing in later life through engaging over ten thousand residents, staff, visitors and volunteers who were all able to vote for their favourite scheme out of the 1,180 nominated between 15 November 2016 and 28 February 2017.
John Galvin, EAC’s Chief Executive, explained the importance of the awards: "Specialist housing for older people plays an enormously significant role in helping them stay independent for longer. The security, support and great communities have a positive impact on individuals and reduce the need for NHS services.”
The EAC Awards were celebrated at Edgbaston Cricket Ground, Birmingham on 16th May 2017 where the bronze, silver and gold awards winners were announced.
