Jean takes seat on SFHA Board

Published on 19th December 2018

Berwickshire Housing Association’s Operations Director Jean Gray has been appointed to the Board of the Scottish Federation of Housing Associations (SFHA).

The SFHA is the national representative body for Scotland’s Housing Associations and Cooperatives and their ambition is that everyone has a good home in a successful community, with a
range of high quality, affordable, safe and accessible homes that meet people’s changing needs and aspirations throughout their lives.

The results of the 2018 Board elections were announced at SFHA’s 43rd Annual General Meeting on Wednesday, August 29, and Jean was successful in becoming one of the three members to
represent the ‘Rural and Islands’ constituency.

Jean said:

“I’m very pleased to have been successfully nominated on to the SFHA Board representing Rural and Islands. I think I bring a wealth of experience from my 25 years in the
housing sector.

I want to ensure that rural issues are given the same, if not higher, priority as urban on the political agenda and I have a strong voice to challenge and debate as the Board considers the strategic
direction of the SFHA and the sector.

I want to make a difference and I believe that working with our partners we can be heard, we can continue to build on successes and most importantly support the most vulnerable people in our
communities.”

Sally Thomas, SFHA Chief Executive, welcomed the new and continuing Board Directors, and said that she looked forward to their first meeting on September 26, 2018.
