Leading UK housing provider Sanctuary Group has appointed Kate Still to the position of Director of Community Investment and Involvement.
Reporting to Simon Clark, Sanctuary Group’s Director – Housing and Communities, Kate will be responsible for ensuring that Sanctuary works closely with residents to build and support vibrant, sustainable communities through investment in local activities and training opportunities. In partnership with external organisations and agencies, she will ensure that Sanctuary is making the most of available funding to bring long-term benefits to residents.
Prior to joining Sanctuary, Kate has held a number of high profile roles including her position as Head of Social Economy for the South East England Development Agency where she was responsible for strengthening relationships between the nine Regional Development Agencies (RDA’s) and Central Government.
Kate, who joins Sanctuary from Richmond Housing Partnership where she was Head of Social Investment and Enterprise, said: “I was attracted to the position at Sanctuary because I was keen to work for an organisation that is committed to providing a first class service to its residents. Investment in communities is even more important in tough economic times, when we need to give residents greater support in accessing opportunities that will make a long-term difference to their lives.
“I am looking forward to harnessing Sanctuary’s fantastic reputation and helping to transform neighbourhoods into places our residents are proud to call home.”
