World Habitat Awards Winner!

Giroscope and Canopy, a housing project based in Leeds, are winners of the World Habitat Awards 2015-16 for our project ‘Self-Help Housing in the North of England’.  This award, presented by the Building and Social Housing Foundation (BSHF) and the United Nations Human Settlements Programme (UN-Habitat), recognises practical and innovative housing projects from around the world.

This award is really exciting news for Giroscope and recognises our work here in west Hull bringing back empty properties, providing decent housing and volunteering opportunities and generally helping to regenerate our neighbourhood.

The Awards was presented at Habitat lll in Ecuador, October 2016 – the United Nations Conference on Housing and Sustainable Urban Development.
