What our current members say:
“With over 30 years’ experience in the NHS, I have seen first-hand the impact and importance of housing on people’s physical and mental health and wellbeing, as well as health inequalities in society. Getting housing right will help people get to a better place and change their lives. This is where organisations like Tyne makes a real difference particularly for those who are vulnerable and homeless. I am very proud to be part of the board, and help make this happen.
I have served on a number of Boards, and this enables me to ensure good governance for Tyne Housing, so it is able to continue its vital work. My health background and knowledge and experience of how service commissioning works will help to strengthen and develop the support and the range of offer we can give to keep people healthy and independent in the community.”
