Wendy joined the housing profession at the age of 18 and is passionate about the importance of a quality home to people’s lives. She specialises in evidence-based strategy and policy development, homelessness, specialist provision and affordable housing. Her broad knowledge base enables her to make the connections across a wider agenda and to facilitate strong partnerships and effective collaborations. Working for a number of local authorities in both rural and urban areas, she has moved from a front-line delivery role to taking charge of developing housing strategies, enabling affordable housing and reviewing homelessness services.  Wendy prides herself on being someone who goes that little bit further and thrives in situations where things need to be done a little bit differently. She is a Corporate Member of the Chartered Institute of Housing, holds a first class BSc Hons in Housing Studies and is a Prince 2 Practitioner.
