Councillor Dave Fallows, Chairman of The Highland Councils Finance, Housing and Resources Committee said: This new award scheme will be a great opportunity for our tenants to shout out loud about what and who makes their communities better. We look forward to giving the winners the recognition they deserve at our annual tenants conference.

Stephen Kelly, Membership Officer for The Co-operative Group in Scotland, said: The Co-operative takes pride in the role it plays at the heart of communities across Scotland. The Highland Council Tenant Community Awards are about people taking pride in where they live, and so we are delighted to be able to support them in their inaugural year.
