WSHA says a fond farewell to long-standing tenant board member
Ms Newton joined the board in 2000 and was the first tenant board member.
After two decades on the board of West of Scotland Housing Association, Clare Newton is retiring. Ms Newton has been a key part of WSHA’s board, and she was the first tenant member when she joined in 2000. She is committed to having tenant’s voices at the heart of decision making and she was integral in encouraging increased tenant representation.
Ms Newton is well-known and respected in the social housing sector in Scotland and had board member roles within Tollcross Housing Association and EVH.
Kelly Adams, Chair of WSHA, said: “We want to thank Clare for her significant commitment to WSHA, our tenants and the social housing sector. Clare has been a valued board member and had a clear impact in ensuring the views of tenants were at the heart of decision making and service delivery. She will be missed by staff, tenants, and her fellow board members. We wish her the very best for her future and look forward to keeping in touch with her through her continued membership of WSHA.”
WSHA is currently recruiting for a general board member to be involved in making a real impact on customers at an exciting time as they play their part in tackling climate change by implementing its Green Strategy and continuing its digital transformation. You can find out more on the WSHA website.
