AN EVENT aimed at helping tenants to take action to stop anti-social behaviour is in the running for a national award.
Clwyd Alyn Housing Association, part of the Pennaf Housing Group, held a conference for tenants and residents across North and Mid Wales last year, aimed at increasing awareness of how Clwyd Alyn supports tenants in helping them to resolve anti-social behaviour issues.
The conference has now been nominated for the Communication in Housing section of the TPAS Cymru awards.
The awards are presented annually by the Tenant Participation Advisory Service (TPAS).The results will be announced at Venue Cymru, Llandudno, on May 1.
Tracy Shenton, anti-social behaviour co-ordinator, said: “The conference was an excellent way of communicating directly with our tenants, not only to present information about the steps tenants and residents need and the support available for them but also to listen and receive feedback about how we can continue to improve the services we provide.
“After listening to tenants’ views at the conference, a range of literature has been produced to help them through the whole process.”
Community involvement officer Gareth Hughes- Roberts, who nominated the conference, said: “The cross-section of different ages of those attending also helped to break down barriers and stereotypes concerning anti-social behaviour issues.”
