During the lifetime of the project, the Green Spaces for People Portfolio won a number of prestigious awards, both nationally and internationally.

Some of these awards are listed below:

Regeneration and renewal awards LJ Meeks, a resident at High Hazels in Nottingham, won the Regeneration & Renewal Awards' Volunteer of the Year. This is given to a non-regeneration professional for their outstanding commitment to the regeneration of their community.

Our portfolio beat over 100 other businesses to win The Green Organisation's Green Apple Award. This award recognises environmental best practice around the world.

Our World awards Mab Lane Community Woodland in Liverpool was an under-used and frequently flooded field. It was transformed into a woodland that is a positive asset for the local community. The transformation won the Neighbourhood Improvement Project Award in the It's Our World Merseyside Environment Awards.
What We Are Proud Of

The National Housing Federation ran the What We Are Proud Of Awards. The High Hazels project won the East Midlands Best Contribution To The Local Community Award.

An independent judge said that the project is a "fantastic example of what a housing provider should be proud of! It ticked all the boxes. It's innovative as it's not a traditional housing service. Wide-reaching because it has a significant impact on the local community. And it tackles socio-economic through helping residents get back into work. It also encouraged volunteering in the community and is a true example of localism!"

Local Government News awards

Brunswick Cemetery in Bristol was runner up in the Local Government News Street Design Awards Urban Green Space Category. The awards aim to reward innovation and good practice in urban street design schemes.
