The National TPAS Cymru Good Practice Awards 2023 is the ultimate platform to share, recognise, and celebrate the incredible work we do with our customers in our communities.

Our initiative, aptly named “Pop Up!” has caught the attention of the judges in the “Communicating with Customers and Residents Award” category. By organising engaging events throughout Bridgend, we’ve had the pleasure of meeting our wonderful communities face-to-face, fostering stronger connections, and rejuvenating open communication like never before. The impact has been incredible, and we’re thrilled to see it recognised.

But that’s not all! Our partnership with the Wildmill Youth Club has earned us a nomination for the “Communities Supporting Communities Award.” Over the past decade, we’ve listened attentively to the voices of young people in our neighbourhoods, working hand in hand to create positive change. Together, we’ve achieved remarkable milestones – from discouraging littering and dog fouling through clever signage design to transforming the subway with a vibrant coat of paint. Our recent planting project is another step towards enhancing the area’s beauty and keeping it free from unwanted waste.

When asked about these shortlistings, our Head of Communications & Engagement, Laura Morris said, “Our incredible community engagement has earned us not one, but TWO nominations in the TPAS Cymru Good Practice Awards! It’s a testament to the outstanding efforts of our team and the unwavering support from our amazing community. Connecting with our customers and communities is so important to us- it helps us ensure that our decisions are always made with our customers at heart. We thank everyone who has engaged with us during these events – let’s keep the momentum going and help our communities shine!”

We want to extend a thank you to all who have joined us at our events and supported us in engaging with our customers. Your contributions have been invaluable, and we genuinely couldn’t have achieved this without you. Rest assured, we’re committed to continuing these remarkable initiatives, putting our customers at the centre of everything we do.

The awards ceremony will take place in Cardiff on July 5th, and we’re keeping our fingers crossed for some well-deserved wins.
