  • TPAS

    TPAS are a professional body that offers accreditation for customer engagement services within the social housing sector. 

    They act as an external auditor who can provide an independent assessment on our performance that will help us to continually improve our services to customers. It enables staff to refocus and look at new ways of working to ensure what we currently have in place provides VFM and is making a difference to the organisation and our customers.

    The accreditation is for the benefit of the whole organisation.  It will consider whether our customer engagement service brings value to the organisation as a hole in terms of our CE Charter and whether it results in real outcomes for the organisation and tenants at large.
