About Tpas

We’re Tpas, England’s leading tenant engagement experts.

We're a not-for-profit organisation and have been representing our members across England since 1988.

We promote, support and champion tenant involvement and empowerment in social housing across England. 

Our membership is made up of local tenants and landlord organisations, covering 3 million homes. We also have a growing commercial membership of contractors, sub-contractors and affiliates.

What we do

We're dedicated to improving tenant engagement standards across the country. We bring tenants, landlords and contractors together through a wide range of services, independent and impartial advice, support, consultancy, and training.

Whether you’re a tenant or landlord, we’re here to provide you with the skills and knowledge you need to work together. Because together we can have conversations that matter. Finding solutions together, saving money and bringing lasting change to communities. 

Our history

Tpas has evolved a lot since we started our journey as a tenant’s participation service. Today, we support over 300 Housing Associations, Local Authorities, resident groups and contractors covering over 3.5 million homes, to experience the benefits of true tenant engagement.

With our ever-expanding range of products and services, we feel we’ve grown beyond delivering participation advisory services. So in 2016 we dropped the acronym, “Tenants Participation Advisory Service” and chose to be known simply as Tpas – The tenant engagement experts. Tpas is truly an engagement company.
