About the conference

Join us at the largest gathering of involved tenants and residents in the country. This year the conference is set around the theme of ‘Change’.

We will examine change to housing, change to how engagement is delivered, change in communities and dealing with change to your role.

As the country’s leading experts in resident and community engagement, we will bring inspiring keynote speakers, experienced workshop leaders and topical interactive sessions, all wrapped up in the warm and friendly event that our delegates have come to expect from a Tpas conference.

Last year we achieved 100% satisfaction from delegates. Make sure you’re there for the most important event of the year for tenants in the sector, featuring award winning tenants, policy makers, chief executives and thought leaders as we champion the impact engaged residents can create in thriving communities across the country.



With 24 different workshops running across two days it's a packed programme with plenty of choice and opportunity to learn, share and debate together.

Key themes:

Changing Housing

Explore how the housing landscape in England is changing. New tenures, new merged organisations, a greater commercial focus to build to more homes and emerging relationships with health and social sector. Discover what the role for tenants and communities can be in this new housing world.

Changing Communities

Develop a broader understanding of the changing community engagement agenda where housing providers are doing things differently or new community partners are meeting need instead. Hear about successful community projects’ and how landlords are improving  community resilience through employment, skills and training initiatives.

Changing Engagement

Examine how engagement is changing in the new world where understanding resident data, trends and information will be more important than ever. Explore, learn and be energised to embrace new forms of digital engagement alongside scrutiny, value for money and co design of services.

Changing Me

Keep pace with the skills you will need to work effectively alongside your landlord, community partners or your fellow residents. What worked before may not work in the future so come along to develop your understanding of how your skills can contribute to a successful future. Utilising social media, understanding key performance information, analysis and communication skills. All these, and more, will be needed in the tenant of tomorrow.
