Resident Committee Member
My name is David;
I am a retired Civil Servant and have been a Saha resident since 2013.
I am a member of the T4R Scrutiny Panel; Panel membership enables me to engage fully with Saha in the promotion of ‘Resident Voice’ and Resident engagement.
I am a ‘Resident member’ within Saha’s Operations Committee, in which I can promote Co-production from a Resident perspective, and progress Resident involvement in Saha decision making to the full.
I am an ardent advocate for Resident involvement, and take great pride in being able to represent all Saha Residents through the work of the Panel and Committee, knowing that my contribution helps to further the work of Saha in its mission of Transforming Lives.
