Bernie Cameron, Vice Chair of EastendHomes was awarded the much coveted National Tenant of the Year Award at the TPAS (Tenant Participation Advisory Service) Annual Conference on Saturday 24 July 2010.
EastendHomes would like to congratulate Bernie Cameron on this fantastic achievement, following his success as the TPAS Tenant of the Year (Southern Region) winner.
Over the past two years the TPAS Connecting People Awards have been recognised for their importance of acknowledging and rewarding the excellent work that tenants and people who work with tenants, have been doing in communities across England.
Bernie Cameron has been a committed and tireless campaigner for tenant involvement for many years on the British estate in Mile End and across the London Borough of Tower Hamlets itself. Bernie is Chair of the local Mile End Estate Board and is Vice Chair of the main Board of EastendHomes.
In addition to developing and supporting a wide range of community work, particularly sporting initiatives for young people from all sections of the community, Bernie was instrumental in setting up EastendHomes as a community based social landlord in Tower Hamlets, which has recently completed a £25 million investment programme to regenerate the British Estate.
Both the previous and the current Government put great emphasis on the difference that local people can make to improve the places in which they live. Bernie Cameron is one of those exceptional people who has helped transform British Estate beyond any reasonable expectation.
Martin Young, Chair of EastendHomes said: “This is a well deserved honour for Bernie Cameron. His dedication to the community on the British Estate and Tower Hamlets has long been acknowledged locally and both residents of the borough and EastendHomes staff will be delighted that his dedication and commitment have been recognised with this national award.”
TPAS (the Tenant Participatory Advice Service) is a national organisation which specialises in tenant involvement and assisting tenants in challenging, influencing and controlling how their housing services are delivered.
