Supporting residents into work

Posted on 09 February 2021

Longhurst Group’s Director of Community Investment has joined the board of Communities that Work.

Longhurst Group’s Director of Community Investment, Charmaine Simei, has been appointed to the board of Communities that Work - the national voice of housing providers that supports residents and communities into employment. Communities that Work members own and manage more than 1.3 million homes, working with some of the country’s most vulnerable communities.

“[This is] a pivotal moment,” Charmaine said. “COVID’s devastating impact on communities and the economy is something we need to address now, for the future.

“The housing sector is uniquely placed to build on its strong foundations of employment support, delivered locally to our communities. Collectively, we can provide a significant boost to the country’s economic recovery through collaboration, focused effort and partnerships.”
