Retiring from Yorkshire Housing a the end of March 2017, most of Gillian’s  housing sector experience has been in community development and resident involvement. Building strong communities, where people choose to live and bring up their families, is the key to developing successful neighbourhoods. Gillian’s most recent work involved her  supporting tenants and their families into employment, training and self-employment.  Gillian says “I feel my experience of working directly with tenants in the face of welfare reform has given me valuable insight and empathy. This will be a useful skill to bring to your committee in the face of competing priorities and budget cuts. I can bring my business head and my social heart to the table”.
