Top award for firm

THE company which manages Barnsley Council’s housing stock has won a top national award.

Berneslai Homes were awarded the Resident Involvement Quality Standard by The Tenant Participation Advisory Service (TPAS), a national organisation which works to promote tenant empowerment.

The accreditation, which lasts for three years, is awarded to landlords who involve residents in the planning, delivery and monitoring of their services.

Berneslai Homes Director of Business and Customer Services, Dave Fullen, said: “Keeping TPAS accreditation is really important to Berneslai Homes. The standards we have to meet are tough so we’re constantly challenging ourselves.”
