Meet the TPAS Cymru Team

Staff members at TPAS Cymru have an extensive knowledge of social housing, with a focus on issues from the tenant perspective and for the benefit of tenants. Over the past 20 years we have developed a strong track record in developing effective participation through training, support, practical projects and policy development. Our Teams are split between North Wales, based in Llandudno Junction and South Wales, based in Cardiff. Between our two teams we are able to respond to our members needs across wales.
