Tina Swani

With 30 years in the health and voluntary sectors, and 10 years in the housing sector, Tina has previously worked for The British Red Cross and is on the Board of Hospice UK and Chair of Lench’s Trust.

She brings considerable experience of strategic development and transformation in health, wellbeing and social care and is currently facilitating whole-system leadership and integrated planning of many organisations working together to redesign service for their population.

Tina believes that good quality social housing creates a positive cycle of personal, community and economic contribution, independence, resilience and growth. And that a good social housing provider is as much about people as it is about business.
