Kingdom Housing Association celebrates double win at TPAS Scotland Good Practice Awards
Kingdom Housing Association is celebrating a double win after lifting two awards at the TPAS Scotland Good Practice Awards in St Andrews.
The awards took place as part of the TPAS Scotland Annual Conference which was held at The Fairmont Hotel from the 4th-6th December.
Kingdom took top honours in the ‘Tenant Participation Champion of the Year: New Tenant, Resident or Staff Members’ and the ‘Tenant Participation Champion of the Year: Organisation’ categories.
The Good Practice Awards showcase the compelling and inspirational success stories of tenants and landlords working together and celebrate the people, ideas and organisations which shape tenant engagement.
Max Scotto, Kingdom’s tenant participation officer and winner of the Tenant Participant Champion of the Year in the New Tenant, Resident or Staff Member category, said: “Tenant Participation has become an embedded practice in the association’s processes. Much of this is due to the vision of Kingdom’s board and leadership of group chief executive Bill Banks and head of housing, Matthew Busher. But it’s also a reflection of the hard work and commitment of other staff as well as tenants on our scrutiny panel, whose ages range from 16 to 80.”
Matthew Busher, Kingdom’s head of housing, added: “We are delighted to have been adjudged as winners amongst some pretty stiff competition. This reflects really well on the efforts that all at Kingdom are making, and in particular our TP Officer Max Scotto.
“We’re also grateful for all the efforts of our tenant scrutiny panel and all tenants who engage in TP activities, without whom we would not be where we are. Whilst we are celebrating our success, we see this as a stepping stone on a journey to continuously improve the range of opportunities that we provide for our tenants to have a meaningful influence in decision making.”
