Maggie Cameron-Ratchford

Board Member

Maggie worked for a local council in the east end of London for over 20 years, mainly managing housing services – homelessness, housing advice, management of council housing and managing large projects.

After taking voluntary redundancy, Maggie took the opportunity to move into different areas and worked for a council in north London, commissioning services for young people, single homeless people, older people and people with learning difficulties. More recently Maggie has moved back to the east end, again in a completely different work area, providing music services to school children.

Maggie is now working part time and wants to devote more time to her role as Vice Chair of Saha (Partnerships and People) as well as spending more time on more personal hobbies like baking, drawing and spending time with friends. She joined the Saha Board in 2011.

What Saha means to me:

“Saha is an inspirational organisation to be involved with because it is about people working with people to make a difference”
