I’m a director of a communications company that works with local authorities, housing associations and companies such as National Grid on their public relations and stakeholder engagement programmes.
I wanted to use my skills and experience in a voluntary capacity within the housing sector, especially with a provider that work with individuals who are having difficulties accessing mainstream housing.
The role allows me to feel like I make a positive contribution to the organisation and the clients that Horton Housing support. I’m developing my knowledge in the sector and thoroughly enjoy the discussion and range of ideas suggested by the board.
My background is in housing, having worked for Calderdale Council in a variety of roles, along with general business skills and experience in reputation management and community engagement. I’m professionally qualified in housing, a Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Housing and hold a Masters degree in Management.
Away from the Horton Housing board, my three big passions are:
