These Awards can be fun. The nomination game (card game) is well worth playing;
it stimulates interesting conversations between residents on a variety of important
issues. It also contains notes on how to help residents play the game without compromising
Quotes from participants:
“Tenants understood how to complete forms after instruction and then there
was no input from staff during the process, all papers were sealed in envelopes
by the individual groups ready for the post. Everyone commented how much they enjoyed
it!” - Hawthorn Mill, Connect Housing.
“Our tenants have taken part in the nomination; we had three groups and they
all enjoyed taking part” – St Columba Court, Anchor Retirement.
“...we had a great afternoon yesterday with 3 groups of residents playing
the cards... We managed to engage with a number of residents who receive care services
and do not always find it easy to get to social events. All agreed that it was an
interesting and enjoyable way of discussing feelings on the place that we live in
and the services we receive” – Chairman, Friends of Mill Rise,
