Tenants who go the extra mile, landlords and tenants working together and great ideas that show what can be achieved when people are truly involved are what we recognise and celebrate in the TPAS Awards.
The 2012 TPAS Awards were the biggest and best to date with a mass of inspiring nominations and soon it will be time for 2013's to begin
2012 Tenant of the Year - Caroline Benford - The Hyde Group
The awards are open to social housing providers, tenants and contractors to give recognition to excellent work and vitally, to share best practice among the sector so more people benefit.
Three regional (Northern, Central and Southern) award ceremonies are held to determine the best in each area before the overall winners are unveiled at the grand final held during the TPAS Annual Conference event.
As ever, the judges will reward tenants who go the extra mile, innovative pioneering schemes and team efforts that make communities safer and more desirable places to live.
TPAS is one of the longest-serving tenant organisation in Europe with over 20 years experience informing and supporting tenant and landlord members to challenge, influence and control how their housing services should be delivered.
ROBIN LAWLER, CIH PRESIDENT
"Peer recognition is the most sincere acclamation. So when tenants & staff who work with tenants are recognised through the TPAS Awards it really means something to them & their organisations. Long may TPAS continue to recognise & praise those people who make a difference to their neighbours & their communities."
Alison Inman, Chair of Colchester Homes
"The TPAS awards recognise the very best of the housing sector with a particular emphasis on the people who make their communities safer, healthier and better places to live and work. I am proud to help judge the awards but so much prouder of the people and organisations they help to celebrate."
