Jill Murray delivers EPIC reminder of the power of housing to create change at CIH Presidential Address
CIH president Jill Murray BA FCIH launched her charitable appeal when she delivered her 2024 Presidential Address last week.
During her speech, Jill gave an insight into life growing up and how it galvanised her passion for housing and drive to become the best housing professional she could be.
Jill said: “My BE EPIC campaign is in fact my personal story – it’s not something that I dreamt up for the purposes of becoming the CIH president. It’s about my belief in the housing sector and its role to deliver change to people and communities.”
Jill also shared more about her endeavour to raise money for a very important charity, Action for Children.
She added: “The work that Action for Children do is so important across the United Kingdom and especially in the most vulnerable communities. Building foundations for children to have a happy, healthy, supported life fits incredibly with Be EPIC and I would like to thank everyone who’s kind enough to support this wonderful charity which will make a positive difference to the life of a disabled, vulnerable child or young person and their family”
After her powerful address, Jill was joined on stage by friend and leader of the opposition, Sir Keir Starmer MP, who reiterated Labour’s firm commitment to housing, stating “I want a country where every person has a safe and secure place that they can call home”.
