PCH nominated for top housing award
The last 18 months have thrown up many new challenges, but resident involvement has remained at the very centre of what we do.
Which is why we’re thrilled to announce that PCH’s efforts have been recognised after being shortlisted for an award from one of the country’s top housing bodies.
PCH has been shortlisted for the Outstanding Tenant Engagement award by the national industry body Tenant Participation Advisory Service (TPAS).
These awards are really important in the social housing sector and PCH has beaten many other housing associations to go straight to the finals. This means our work has been recognised as among the top six best in the country.
Communities Team Manager, Alice Potter, said: “There are normally regional finals before the national finals, which means the competition to get to this stage has been huge this year and puts us in the top 6 in the country.
She added: “The TPAS Awards act as a beacon for best practice, so it’s amazing to be recognised in this way. Residents have told us how much they’ve valued the PCH Connect programme during such a challenging time, and we really appreciate the support we’ve had from other teams to make it possible.”
CEO of Plymouth Community Homes, John Clark, said he was proud of the result. He explained: “PCH is proud to have TPAS accreditation and being shortlisted for this award demonstrates our commitment to listening to and involving tenants in the design, delivery and evaluation of our services.”
Wish us luck, as the finals are taking place virtually on 8 October. We will keep you all updated in the run up using the hashtag:
