St. Georges Crypt, the award-winning Leeds homeless charity, has won the Environmental, Social, and Corporate Governance (ESG) Award at the 2021 Yorkshire Residential Property Awards for their Regent Lodge and Don Robins House developments.
The award is for developments in the residential property sector in Yorkshire that can demonstrate innovation and dedication in embracing sustainability/societal impact.
St. George’s Crypt has embarked on an ambitious development programme, building two blocks of self-contained, supported living flats. Comprising studio, one and two person flats, these developments can be mixed use and multi-functional. Regent Lodge supports entrenched drinkers to reduce their alcohol intake and move towards a more independent life. Don Robins House supports its residents to develop practical life skills in a non-judgemental setting with the aim of moving into independent living solutions.
Head of New Builds and Projects, Martin Patterson, said: ‘We are all delighted that not one, but two, of our projects have been recognised for sustainability and social gain by the Variety Club. It was the culmination of many years’ planning and preparation which was rewarded by this honour – especially on our 91st birthday. Both projects are major steps for our clients as they move on in their lives towards better accommodation and life skills.’
