Participation Awards

This year’s TPAS Cymru Participation Awards was held at Venue Cymru on the 14th July 2016

We see this event as the “Oscars” of the Participation World.  Maybe more now than for many years, there is a drive to involve members of the local community in the development and protection of their own neighbourhoods. It is being recognised that participation changes housing services and communities for the better.

The Participation Awards give us an opportunity to recognise and celebrate the hard work that you do. It shows that the work is worthwhile and gives us all the motivation to try out innovative ideas that actually work!   The event also allows TPAS Cymru to publicise and share good practice, learning and experiences from across Wales.

A synopsis of all entries received can be found here and all photos from the event is on our Facebook page.
