The Tenant Participation Advisory Service (TPAS Cymru) has supported social housing tenants and landlords across Wales to develop effective participation in housing for over 25 years.  We also work on the wider citizen engagement agenda, promoting good practice in public services, through training, support, practical projects and policy development.
