Resident in Willesden

I have been in social housing since 2005 with St Mungos, Willesden Free Churches Housing Association and in 2010 I moved across to saha. I am chairman of Harlesden Town Team. We have over 2000 members, and I sit on 2 boards, am a member of 3 forum groups and sit on 3 government committees. I also promote peer to peer support in Brent.

Why I got involved in the T4R Panel:

I got involved in the T4R Panel because I think that by looking at how saha works, we can bring our life experience to the governance of saha and actively improve the services for us, the residents, today and also for future residents. I enjoy every minute I spend with the team.

Scrutiny inspection:

We chose the areas we wanted to scrutinise in the fist year. Following the work we have done so far, I have been impressed with the response from saha.
