The association provides homes and services to more than 5,000 households across Peterborough South Cambridgeshire, Fenland and Huntingdonshire.

Chief Executive Paul Dolan said: “Our Best Companies journey so far has been nothing short of fantastic. We achieved 1 Star Accreditation in October 2019 in our first Best Companies survey, a phenomenal result that we followed up with 2 Stars in our second survey earlier this year.

“This is an amazing achievement because this is about the culture of the organisation, but most importantly it’s about our people, and it reflects the dedication across all teams to improve the way we work to deliver the best possible outcomes. I am so proud of what we have achieved but there’s more to come.”
