TIS National Excellence Awards 2019: Application deadline fast approaching
The Tenants Information Service (TIS) is inviting entries across eight categories for the TIS National Excellence Awards 2019: Inspire to Achieve, in association with the Scottish Government.
With the event fast approaching, there is only two weeks until the closing deadline for entries. Each year applications get better and better, and we expect this year to be no different. With many already being submitted, it’s clear that this year the judges will have to make some difficult decisions.
The awards recognise and celebrate housing organisations, staff, volunteers, tenants, residents, and community groups who are leading the way and making a difference within the Scottish social housing sector.
Categories honour excellence in everything from, partnership working and scrutiny practice, to digital innovation and community regeneration. Hotly anticipated, the awards offer a seal of approval for the most outstanding work across the sector.
