Friday 12th of June 2020

12th June 2020

The Tpas prestigious event to celebrate the remarkable volunteers, housing staff and contractors who bring lasting change to communities will be going ahead - digitally.

The Tpas awards is the only dedicated event solely to recognise and reward engagement excellence and best practice in the housing sector.   


Initially scheduled for March 2020, the Tpas awards were postponed to September due to the coronavirus pandemic.


Today, we are delighted to announce that motivational speaker Gavin Oattes will host an all-day event to celebrate the Tpas awards nominees virtually.


The new virtual event will take place on 18th September from 10.30am until 3.45pm in a live broadcast from a high tech, purpose-built studio.  It will be an interactive, fun and uplifting event. Gavin will be joined by our keynote speaker Dr Andy Cope to inform, celebrate and inspire our nominees and their guests.  This will be followed by the awards ceremony which will be a show to remember with nominees invited to accept their awards virtually.


Our nominees, and their guests will be well looked after by our event catering partners, Cote Brasseries. We will be delivering high-quality food direct to our guests’ homes to ensure that we all share a special experience together.


Jenny Osbourne, Tpas chief executive, said


“Tpas and Connect In have always prided ourselves on how the Tpas awards offer an exceptional experience to nominees. We have stretched the boundaries on how to do this virtually.


I’m absolutely delighted to that we can host the Tpas Awards this year in this way - handing out our sectors highest accolades to the inspirational people who create change and impact in their communities is an absolute privilege and the highlight of my role as chief executive of Tpas.


The format might have to change a little this year, but the purpose and commitment to an unforgettable event is the same, celebrating the achievements across housing sector In England.  I’ll see you there.

The Connect In Events team will be in touch with all Sponsors and Guests over the coming weeks to explain more and make all the arrangements to ensure the 18th of September is a huge success.
