HORTON HOUSING ASSOCIATION, founded in 1985, works with organisations such as the Bradford Day Shelter to help those who might not be a priority for state help — people with drug and alcohol or mental health problems and teenage parents, for example. Twenty-five years on, executive director Sheila Bamford is still at the helm helping people find homes, self-esteem and independence, and making sure the 208 employees across 19 sites don't feel taken advantage of either (a 62% positive score). People find her inspiring (70%) and say that she and senior managers truly live the organisation's values to promote social justice and oppose discrimination (69%). Support workers typically earn almost £21,000 and there are opportunities to learn (59%). People don't have skills the association fails to use (54%) and feel that they, and their clients, have a positive future (65%). hortonhousing.co.uk
