Inclusion Housing from York has been named as one of the finalists, and Ruban d’Honneur recipients, in the 2016/17 European Business Awards sponsored by RSM.
It is one of only 110 finalists announced after over 33,000 businesses were engaged in the competition, and was chosen by a panel of independent judges because it displayed the core values of innovation, ethics and success.
The company will now undertake an in depth face-to-face interview, and will find out if it is a winner of one of the 11 categories at a Gala Final on May 4 in Dubrovnik.
Inclusion Housing is a cutting edge and innovative health & social care Social Enterprise working across England in partnership with an array of funders, carers and developers to provide specialised supported housing for vulnerable and disable adults. It manages a substantial and growing national portfolio of social housing properties, and will grant residential tenancies to vulnerable people who receive daily support from specialist Support Providers.
Chief Executive, Neil Brown, is delighted that the business has been recognised; “We are making such a difference to improve the quality of life and independence of so many people across the country; reaching the final of the European Business Awards will hopefully help us do even more.”
The European Business Awards was set up to support the development of a stronger and more successful business community throughout Europe. Lead sponsor RSM, a provider of audit, tax and consulting services to middle market businesses globally, has supported the European Business Awards since its inception.
Adrian Tripp, CEO of the European Business Awards said: “To survive in this economic climate is hard enough, so to innovate, prosper and grow as this year’s Ruban D’Honneur recipients have is truly remarkable. Europe needs more companies like these. Well done to them all.”
INCLUSION HOUSING is also taking part in ‘The Public Vote’, where the public choose ‘National Public Champions’ for each country. To vote for them go to: businessawardeurope.com. The company with the most votes in each country wins and will be announced on 6 March.

About the European Business Awards:
The European Business Awards’ primary purpose is to support the development of a stronger and more successful business community throughout Europe. For all citizens of Europe, prosperity, social and healthcare systems are reliant on businesses creating an even stronger, more innovative, successful, international and ethical business community – one that forms the beating heart of an increasingly globalised economy.
The European Business Awards programme serves the European business community in three ways:
• It celebrates and endorses individuals’ and organisations’ success
• It provides and promotes examples of excellence for the business community to aspire to
• It engages with the European business community to create debate on key issues
The European Business Awards is now in its 10th year. This year it engaged with over 33,000 businesses from 34 countries. Last year’s public vote generated over 227,000 votes from across Europe. Sponsors and partners include RSM, ELITE and PR Newswire. businessawardseurope.com.
