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 their confidentiality.
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, Aspire Housing.
