CHP is delighted to announce that its Resident Involvement manger has been shortlisted at the annual Tenant Advisory Participation Awards (TPAS) for the second year running.
Resident Involvement manager, Ray Canham, who was ‘highly commended’ in last year’s awards by the TPAS judges, has been shortlisted in the Tenant Involvement Officer of the Year award for the Central region for the second year running.
Having joined the company in February 2009, Ray - who will be attending the awards ceremony in Birmingham onFriday 30th March - has helped introduce a number of new opportunities for residents to get involved with CHP so that they can influence the services they receive.
“I’m delighted to have been shortlisted for the TPASTenant Involvement Officer of the Year award as it shows how committed we are in involving our residents in all that we do,” said Ray.
Chelmer Residents’ Forum Chair, Fiona Stirling, who supported Ray’s nomination,commented: “Ray has a wealth of knowledge due to his previous role in supported housing. His humour and commitment to improving services for CHP tenants and his ability to engage with people of all backgrounds, has seen him weave a golden thread for resident involvement throughout the company. It is fantastic that he has been shortlisted for the second time.”
CHP will also be competing against six fellow housing associations after being shortlisted in the ‘Excellence in Annual Reports’ category. Created and designed with the help of residents, CHP’s annual report was shortlisted by the judging panel as it ‘demonstrated an annual report that is clearly aimed at tenants and is well designed and an attractive document to read’.
Victoria Norton, CHP PR and Marketing manager, said: “It’s fantastic to have been shortlisted – it’s testament to our resident’s commitment to producing a document that would interest our tenants. They chose the information to include and the design and this is a brilliant example of what can be achieved through working together.”
