Nicola King & Robert Foster
Housing & Assistant Housing Officers

Nicola and Robert were nominated by a resident in Druids Heath who meets with them regularly as a tower block champion.  She says they are always out on the estate making a positive difference every day to residents by being professional and incredibly sympathetic to any issues raised – particularly from vulnerable tenants.


Paul Trevis

Paul is described as a Support Officer in Housing who is knowledgeable, calm, efficient, trustworthy and respectful.  He always finds sensible and practical suggestions to the many queries which come his way.  He introduced two people who were feeling particularly isolated and excluded to various community groups and activities.  Now not only are they very busy, but they married each other!

The unauthorised encampments team

Bill Pegg and Dave Blakeman were nominated for their efforts to recover land from unauthorised traveller encampments and return it for community use.  They are always positive and often work tirelessly in difficult situations acting as a liaison between the travelling community and the settled community.  ‘Going above the normal call of duty’ is the way these 2 officers are often described.
