This is the third time Ongo has achieved this accreditation which is awarded for their commitment to tenant engagement.

This accreditation provides an independent view of the services a housing association offers to its customers in terms of effective tenant and community engagement. It highlights areas of strength and also ways in which organisations can improve their services.

Gillian McLaren, Consultancy Manager at Tpas, said: “We started working with Ongo in 2010 and have really seen the positive journey staff and tenants have made together to be able to embed tenant engagement as well as they have.

“I’m so proud of everyone that has been involved in this process and it really shows that by working together we can improve the services we offer.”
