    The annual awards are open to the national network of nearly 200 home improvement agencies (HIAs).

    The awards event was held at the National Football Museum, Manchester, as a celebration of the outstanding work carried out daily to support people across the country to live comfortably in their homes. 

    In previous years, Dorset’s HIA has been awarded HIA of the year, Highly Commended HIA, The Innovation for the year – and last year our colleague Paul Foot won Technical Officer of the year, as he was unable to collect his award last year, because of Covid, he was also presented his award on Monday. 

    Richard Pearce, Dorset HIA’s Service Centre Manager, said: “I am proud of the passion our colleagues show whilst providing the highest possible level of service for our clients, in achieving their adaptations."

    “The past and current awards are testimony to the outstanding hard work and devotion given daily by our colleagues, which reflects the excellent service provided by Dorset HIA on behalf of Dorset Council.”
