Independent action learning charity, Commonweal Housing has welcomed researcher Becky Rice to its board of Trustees.
Becky, who joined the charity’s Board of Trustees in September, has over 15 years’ experience in research and evaluation, with specific focus on homelessness and vulnerable groups.
As well as holding senior research positions at organisations such as St Mungos and Shelter, Becky also has an MSc in Social Science Research Methods.
Becky joins the charity’s seven other Trustees whose combined expertise spans parliament, academia, social housing, development and regeneration and finance.
Becky said: “Commonweal Housing’s approach to learning and innovation through empowering expert partners has made a difference to many people in its first decade. From women separated from their children due to short prison sentences through to migrants with no recourse to public funds, I am delighted to join the board and contribute to developing further housing solutions to social injustice going forward.”
Commonweal Chief Executive Ashley Horsey said: “Becky’s appointment is a real asset to our Board and broadens our knowledge and expertise as a charity.
“In particular her experience in research and evaluation really consolidates our work as an action learning charity and reinforces our desire to uncover new and emerging issues.”
