Trent & Dove and RoSPA

Trent & Dove Housing has been entering the RoSPA Achievement Awards since 2008 as part of our overall strategy to improve our health & safety performance year on year. 

We're proud to hold 15 consecutive RoSPA Gold Awards. In 2022, we were awarded the Sir George Earl Trophy - RoSPA's highest accolade. The judging panel noted our highly engaged, driven approach to continually developing health and safety systems that went above and beyond in their pursuit of protecting staff, while positively impacting Trent & Dove’s customers and their families.  In 2023, we also won the Public Service and Local Government Industry Sector Award and a Falls Prevention Trophy for our project work to reduce falls experienced by our older customers.

The RoSPA Awards are the most prestigious in the world of occupational health and safety, and held in high regard around the world, as winning one demonstrates an organisation’s commitment to maintaining an excellent health and safety record. Achieving the standard required is no mean feat.   Julia Small, RoSPA’s head of awards and events

Fall prevention

Our fall prevention project aims to help people recognise and address fall risks. We provide free, fall prevention home visits to all people aged sixty and over who live in our properties. Visits take about an hour and are designed to introduce simple, effective, and low-cost control measures that can reduce the chance of a fall and help our customers to feel safer in their homes
