I have worked in the social housing sector for 18 years across local government in homelessness and then in the housing association sector. In England I spent 8 years working for one of the UK’s largest Housing Associations Places for People. In 2014 I joined RHA Wales Housing Association as Director (formerly Rhondda Housing Association) and became CEO in 2018. I have joined the RPB because I am passionate about making a difference to people’s lives and improving the partnerships and opportunities between health, housing and social care.

My team and I support the Regional Partnership Board governance arrangements and coordinate partnership meetings and agendas as well as partnership funding streams including the Integrated Care Fund and the Transformation Fund. The RPB brings together a range of partners across health and social care to collectively plan integrated services to improve outcomes for the people living in Cwm Taf Morgannwg. This enables us to share best practice and learning. There is a renewed focus on co-production and engagement ensuring that citizens voice can be heard and championed.
