Tenants Networks

Share experience and knowledge with others, discuss issues concerning tenants and hear up to date news and information from us.

As part of your membership, TPAS Cymru arranges regional network meetings for tenants who are active members of representative tenant groups such as Tenants Panels, Forums, Working Groups, Inspection and Scrutiny Groups.

These networks are held twice a year and are an excellent opportunity for tenants to share experience, good practice and lessons learnt with others across their region. The networks are held in North, West and South Wales.

This event is free for tenants, however the landlord is charged a nominal fee to cover the costs of refreshments/room hire therefore you will need to confirm your attendance with your landlord. Due to the popularity of these meetings we usually have to limit the number to three tenants from each landlord.

Tenants co-design the agendas and we invite speakers to stimulate discussion and share good practice.

Officers Network

For all professionals involved in tenant and community engagement to be inspired and meet fellow officers via Housing organisations to share challenges and find solutions.

The Officers networks are held every quarter and are usually held in north and south Wales and is restricted to members only. There is a nominal fee to cover the costs of refreshments.

The TPAS Cymru Members Officers Network event gives officers an opportunity to catch up with other like minded staff, to find out what’s happening locally and further afield, to share information and good practice as well as discussing current challenges and issues. Often the network will include an external speaker talking about a specific, relevant, up to date topic.

We put pride into facilitating these events and the feedback is very positive. Spaces fill up quickly.


All Wales Local Authority Housing Network: Resident Involvement

This all-Wales networking event offers Local Authority tenants and staff an opportunity to reflect on their current resident involvement opportunities.

Local Authority is a key part of social housing and TPAS Cymru feels it doesn’t get the same attention that other forms of Social Housing does. We want to change that. There is always some major changes or challenges to discuss and members say its very beneficial to just focus on Local Authorities.

It also gives delegates a chance to network and share their experiences of resident involvement, good practice and service improvements achieved. This network is currently held annually and was very well received last year by all delegates who attended.

Disability Network

The Disability Network is currently held once a year in north and south Wales – our plan in future is to run 4 events, 2 in north and 2 in south a year and if demand allow split the south Wales into South East and West.

It’s an opportunity to bring together disabled tenants, carers, family members and staff who work with disabled tenants, from across North and South Wales to share experiences, successes and lessons learned.

The event is a facilitated, informal and participatory session which often has guest speakers sharing the latest developments connected to disability and social housing in Wales.
