Dave Yates, Chair of the Board and himself a tenant, said: “The Gateway model puts customers at the heart, with plenty of opportunities for people to air their views.

“The teams now have a greater presence in the heart of our communities. The TPAS awards celebrate all that is good in customer engagement, and I wish them all the best for the finals in October.”

CGA said the organisation listens and responds to feedback to ensure the association delivers the services people need.
