• T.P Properties - Who We Are

The Board And Management Team

Our head office in Blackburn, Lancashire operates as the hub for the flexible and innovative services we have developed throughout the UK.

The primary focus of all efforts is to deliver suitable and quality housing to vulnerable adults in the community; whether these individuals’ needs revolve around learning disabilities, physical disabilities, mental health issues or a combination.  We are therefore proud to define ourselves as a specialist provider of tailored accommodation solutions for those with support needs.

We have provided over £15 million pounds worth of properties to various local authorities, PCTs and support providers, and are committed to a strategy of development – actively seeking partner organisations that have identified a need for supported housing.  To ensure this enterprise operates in an optimum manner a handpicked team has been formed.

Paula Woodruff, Partner, (Psychology BSc Hons) has spent  sixteen years developing a supported living operation that has provided services to over 350 people with learning, physical and mental health needs.  Under her stewardship in 2006, the business was steered through a venture capital sale.  Paula championed the cause of the individual in supported living when this concept was practically unheard of.  This spirit now underpins T.P Properties.  Paula has been a Partner for T.P Properties since January 2007, the year in which she won the prestigious Institute of Directors' 'Young Director of the Year Award' for the Lancashire region.

Barbara Graham, Managing Director, (Psychology BSc Hons)  is an experienced operations director, service development director, registered manager and executive board member, with over eighteen years of experience in the area of social care. She has significant experience of leading teams over multi-site operations ensuring high quality service provision in line with budget expectations and legislation.  It goes without saying that she is an excellent communicator who excels in challenging environments and who has a proven track record of successfully co-ordinating multiple projects to effective conclusion.  
 
The Development Team consists of a qualified Architect with over forty years experience in the wider housing field, and ten years specifically in the area of new builds or renovations for people with particular needs.  A specialist Nursing Consultant in the area of manual handling and layout compliments the design process.  T.P Properties also employs the services of two senior full time Housing Procurement Officers, Alex and Michael, who have over four years experience in delivering projects on time, to specification and budget.  They ensure strong communication occurs between all parties involved in the Development Team.
