Mosscare Housing in Manchester has been awarded for its hate crime awareness campaign.
Mosscare Housing provides 4,500 homes and has received the Corporate Contribution of the year award in the Nubian Times Media Business & Community Awards at the Hilton Hotel on Saturday.

Neighbourhood Officer, Angela Hunter, added: “This award just spurs us on to push the message out that hate crime needs to be reported and dealt with properly.”
