But I feel confident that our dedicated staff and board members will see all these changes through and this will be to the benefit of all our members.”

  • Larke Adger, chief executive officer at West Granton Housing Co-operative

“I’m incredibly proud to be invited to be part of a wonderful organisation, that sets out to provide professional development and support to a sector I have deep affection for” said Jonathan.

“I am very proud to be joining Share’s board at such an exciting time,” said Larke. “Share is a highly respected organisation, and I am looking forward to contributing to the safeguarding of its mission to make a positive impact in the housing sector through learning, development and professional support.”

Susan said: “I am pleased to have been appointed to the board of Share like many in the sector I value Share’s role in developing people and I hope that as a board member I can support them to continue to provide excellent learning and development for those who either work or volunteer within the housing sector across Scotland.”
