Scottish Empty Homes Awards 2022

Scottish Empty Homes Partnership Conference - 22 March 2022

Nominations are now closed for the Auction House Scotland 11th Scottish Empty Homes Awards and finalists will be announced soon.

The awards recognise and celebrate the outstanding work and achievements of individuals and organisations in the revitalisation of empty homes across Scotland.

Now in its eleventh year, the Scottish Empty Homes Partnership and its network of Empty Homes Officers and partners across Scotland have helped to bring more than 6,600 empty homes back into use.

The Auction House Scotland 11th Scottish Empty Homes Awards are a great opportunity to acknowledge the hard work and dedication of the people behind this progress, as our network continues with its mission to transform empty spaces into thriving places.
