We have been shortlisted in the 2024 Alarm Risk Awards in The Team of the Year category.


The awards present a chance for teams and individuals to promote and share ideas and learning as well as  recognising and championing innovation and resilience in managing risk.


The winners will be unveiled at a ceremony on Monday 17 June at The Alarm National Conference at The University of Manchester.


Our award entry included the introduction of a Risk Governance Framework and the development of an in-house risk system alongside a Power BI dashboard so all employees can view risk in real time. Initially a team of three covering Risk Management, Internal Audit and Policy, since 2021 the team has expanded both in size and responsibilities; its accolades include receiving Substantial Assurance for a recent Internal Audit on Risk Management and being praised by HQN – The Housing Quality Network – as part of a governance review.


Lesley Oldfield, Head of Risk Compliance and Policy at Platform Housing Group said : “To be shortlisted in this year’s awards is extremely well deserved for our Governance and Compliance team.  They have demonstrated achievement, commitment and enthusiasm. We wish them – and everyone at the awards – they very best of luck!”


Lesley concluded: “These awards are an important opportunity to take a step back and review how far we’ve come and share inspiration for where we go next in our risk management journey.  This shortlisting acknowledges Platform’s strong commitment to deliver on our targets and build on our resilience.”
