We’re really proud to announce that our Opportunities Team fought off competition from across the North to scoop the ‘Team of the Year’ award at the TPAS Northern Region Awards 2016 which took place in Manchester at the weekend.
The TPAS Awards celebrate the successes and hard work of tenants and landlords in the social housing sector in improving lives and bringing real and long-lasting change in communities.
Our Opportunities Team won the award for the range of support we offer our customers and local residents. This includes: help into training or work or to set-up or grow a new business; opportunities to enjoy different cultural opportunities in the city through our work with places like Home and The Royal Exchange; and a wide range of activities for children and young people to help them gain new skills and confidence.
Our Group Head of Communities, Angela Salami, said: “Winning this award is testament to the hard work of the Opportunities Team and One Manchester’s determination to provide a whole range of opportunities for our communities. Being able to connect all of these different offers and tailor them to meet the different needs of our customers is making a real difference to people’s lives and that’s what we’re about.”
Tpas Chief Executive Jenny Osbourne said: “The shortlisted finalists for this year’s Northern TPAS awards were exceptional. Every single nomination demonstrated how landlords and tenants working together can achieve fantastic, positive results for their communities. Our huge congratulations to One Manchester who impressed the judges with the wide range of services they are providing to meet the needs of tenants and local people.”
We were also nominated in the following categories which is a huge achievement so well done to all involved:
The Opportunities Team will now fly the Manchester flag when they compete in the national TPAS Awards final in July.
