Top 20 Distinctive People Initiative

At Distinctive People we are proud to announce the launch of our Top 20 Distinctive People initiative led by our own Professor Paddy Gray OBE to recognise contribution in the social housing sector – and raise money for charity. The key thing that makes a person distinctive is their ability and willingness to stand out from the crowd. We think that there are a number of distinctive people in UK Housing and are looking for your nominations to highlight those who have contributed in a distinctive way to making a difference in the sector over the last 12 months. Voting is open from 1st July to 24th August 2020. Results will be publicised on 1st September announcing the Top 3 people with the most votes, and we will make a contribution to a charity of their choice.

Thanks for your time and interest and remember the words of Benjamin E.Mays ‘ I believe everyone is born into the world to do something unique and distinctive and if he or she does not do it, it will never be done.’ Be Distinctive!
