Enham Alamein Village is celebrating after being awarded 'Most Inspiring Place' by the Hampshire Association of Local Councils at its 2018 Hampshire Village of the Year Awards.

Following an application and competitive judging process, the village was named 'Most Inspiring Place' at an awards ceremony in Liss in September. The village which provides support to disabled and disadvantaged people was chosen due to its wide range of life enhancing services such as employment and training opportunities and accessible housing.

Steeped in history, the village of Enham Alamein was chosen as an innovative ‘Village Centre’ following the First World War, providing solace, rehabilitation and a home to injured servicemen, enabling them to find purpose, self-sustainment and happiness following their time at war. Through Enham Trust’s mission of supporting disabled people to live a life focused on their ability, and the dedication of the Parish Council and wider village it is still achieving the inspiring and wonderful outcomes it did almost 100 years ago.

Heath Gunn, CEO at Enham Trust commented:

“We are delighted that the village of Enham Alamein has been recognised and awarded Most Inspiring Place. The essential work the Trust and local Parish Council provides to its tenants and residents is life changing, and we are proud of our local community.”

Enham Trust currently supports thousands of disabled people across the country each year in the key areas of their lives by providing housing, care, and various employment & skills opportunities to ensure each customer gains independence, choice, and control over every aspect of their lives.
