Celebrating Excellence

Sheila bunt detail

We were delighted that long term Prospect committee member Sheila Bunt was shortlisted for a 2018 Charted Institute of Housing Scotland Excellence in Leadership award. This award recognises excellent leadership in the housing sector and aims to demonstrate the quality of leaders in housing. Sheila was one of only 3 people shortlisted for this award, and she was the only volunteer. Although she didn't win the award, everyone at Prospect is very proud of her nomination, and of her many achievements which started 30 years ago when she campaigned alongside others for better housing in Wester Hailes. She went on to help set up the Wester Hailes Community Housing Association in 1988 after many negotiations with the council, local politicians and funders.

Sheila has always wanted to make a difference and over the years she has remained a dedicated committee member and tenant. Staff and committee members describe her as consistent, reliable, enthusiastic and honest. We would like to congratulate her on her Excellence in Leadership nomination and thank her for all she has contributed to Prospect’s development and success over the years.
