Chair - Arhag Housing Association
We are looking for a new Chair of the Board!
2019 is going to be a very busy and exciting year for Arhag. We are completing the works to our new office which we will share with our hub partners. The Hub will provide a range of services for Migrants and Refugees including employment skills and healthcare.
The launch of the Hub will be a defining moment for us as it is the centrepiece of our vision of becoming the 'Go To' organisation for Migrants and Refugees. Our maiden partnership bid to the Department of Digital, Culture, Media and Sport and successful and we were awarded £1m to provide services to BME women and girls. The Real Change Collective (RCC) was created to deliver the services has attached media coverage. The hotline and drop-in centre offered advice to over 70 BME women in a three-month period and improve their combined income by £150,000.
Arhag played a key role in the first ever Migrants Access to Housing Conference, raising awareness around issues facing Migrants and Refugees within the housing sector, and demonstrating areas of best practice. The event saw appearances from the then National Housing Federation David Orr and Chartered Institute of Housing CEO Terrie Alafat as well as national press coverage and social media discussion.
Arhag has continued to deliver on its vision, and has been able to influence others in the sector, with a sustained increase in media coverage and winning of two prestigious national awards, which is just the beginning of our new and exciting journey.
All this is happening while at the same time Arhag continues to manage, develop and expand out BME social housing footprint in key London boroughs and beyond and strives for excellence in service delivery.
We are seeking an individual who shares our passion to lead Arhag from the Chair, who is excited and motivated by what we have already achieved and has the skills and ambition to drive our mission for the next stage of our journey.
