Commonweal’s Conversations

Home Commonweal’s Conversations

In this new series, Commonweal’s Conversations, we’re chatting to the people at the heart of change in our sector. From frontline service users to CEOs, we want to hear everything from what makes them tick, what hope they see for the future of the sector, and what their favourite ice cream flavour is.

First up in our hotseat is Dr Elanor Warwick, Head of Strategy, Policy Evidence and Research at Clarion Housing Group, England’s largest housing association, and who has spent much of career as an architect and built environment researcher. Most recently, she joined Commonweal’s Board as a Trustee earlier this year.  

While new to our Board, Dr Warwick has brought vigour and enthusiasm in abundance to the team, as she continues to help us map our way through our new thematic areas. Today, we sit down with Dr Warwick to hear a little more about her career, life and aspirations.

Up next, we sat down with Commonweal's newly appointed Vice-Chair of the Board, Amarjit Bains who is the Pogramme Director at Bridges Outcome – a not-for-profit social enterprise that designs services to improve life chances for vulnerable people.

Bains, an expert in homelessness project delivery, shared insights into her career and discussed the impacts of the housing crisis, including long-term policy solutions to providing more homes.
