Sue Atkinson was appointed as Horton Housing’s second Services Director in 2015.
Sue has worked for Horton Housing since 2002 and has been promoted from her role as Head of Intensive Housing Management, overseeing a range of accommodation and support services in Bradford and Kirklees. She started her career with Horton as a support worker with the Community Support Agency (CSA) and has managed Kirklees St@y and the Substance Support Team.
Under her management, Kirklees St@y was the first service to be assessed under the QAF regulations. She also spent some time with Bradford Council as an NVQ Assessor and Internal Verifier for candidates completing their NVQ awards in Health & Social Care, and managed the Assisi housing project in Bradford.
She is passionate about client involvement and one of her priorities will be to bring different services together to share good practice and ideas and to actively engage clients with the development of services.
