Work to boost ethnic minority involvement in Croydon's housing issues has led to the council being short-listed for two prestigious National Housing Awards.
These annual awards are organised by the professional journal Inside Housing and the Chartered Institute of Housing to flag up excellence in the provision and delivery of affordable housing in the UK.
The council has been short-listed in the Resident Involvement and Equal Opportunities categories in recognition of the specific support it has provided to the setting up of the Croydon African, Asian and Caribbean Tenants' Association (CAACTA), and the hard work carried out by the tenant volunteers themselves.

Croydon's cabinet member for housing, Councillor Tony Newman, said: "Just to be nominated for these awards is a great achievement in itself and owes much to the hard work of everyone involved."
The winners will be announced on Thursday, November 1.
