Investors in People is delighted to award YMCA Cardiff Housing Association, a leading supported accommodation provider in Cardiff and Registered Social Landlord, We invest in people, platinum accreditation.

Platinum is the highest level of accreditation possible to achieve on our We invest in people accreditation. And is something only 2% of organisations achieve.

It means policies and practices around supporting people are embedded in every corner of YMCA Cardiff Housing Association. And in a platinum company, everyone – from the CEO to those in a customer service role – know they have a part to play in the company doing well and is always looking for ways to improve.

YMCA Cardiff Housing Association is part of YMCA Cardiff Group and works to make a positive difference in the community. Last year the organisation helped 750 vulnerable individuals access safe housing, through supported accommodation and private rented properties.

Paul Devoy, CEO of Investors in People, said: “We’d like to congratulate YMCA Cardiff Housing Association on Platinum accreditation. We invest in people is a remarkable effort for any organisation, and places the Housing Association in fine company with a host of organisations that understand the value of people.”

Commenting on the award, Andrew Templeton, Chief Executive Officer said: “We are absolutely delighted to receive the IiP Platinum award. This award, on the back of the Covid pandemic where we were severely tested, is not only testament to our staff’s ongoing commitment to our work but also to the incredible culture we have built over the years. This is a proud day for us all.”

We believe that the success of your organisation begins and ends with people. If we make work better for everyone, we make work better for every organisation. And if we do that… we make society stronger, healthier and happier.
