Tpas awards: Southern region winners

Monday 6th of February 2017

The Tpas awards are characterised by the commitment, passion and flair of the people who are nominated. They are the dedicated, innovative and creative front line staff and tenant teams. The Tpas awards aim to ensure these ‘unsung heroes’ are celebrated on a national platform for striving to raise the standards of tenant involvement together.

The Southern awards event took place on Friday, February 3, at the Wembley Hilton Hotel.
