Aldwyck Housing Group resident Kevin Williams has been shortlisted for the TPAS Young Tenant of the Year award in the central region.
Kevin was nominated by Aldwyck for the commitment he has made to his local community in Luton. Amog his many voluntary contributions, Williams facilitates a weekly youth club at the Hilltop Court Community Room which has been attended by over 125 young people. He has recently joined Aldwyck’s Customer Scrutiny Panel where he will champion involvement and the need to support and develop actively engaged communities.
Carol Hall, Aldwyck's executive director of housing and customer services, said: "Kevin has built excellent positive relationships with young people at the youth club and is respected by the group. It’s fantastic to see the effort he has made recognised by these awards."
TPAS (Tenant Participation Advisory Service) awards celebrate the achievements of individuals and organisations from Northern, Central and Southern England, who have made a significant impact on their communities.
TPAS chief executive Michelle Reid said: "TPAS is passionate about connecting people to achieve great communities. In this era of co-regulation it is vital that tenants and landlords work together to achieve and sustain positive change and impact on their communities."
