Our local boards are there to ensure that we understand our customers’ needs and aspirations. They were set up after we became one company, Catalyst Housing, to help us improve our services and give more choice to our customers.
West London local board
The west London local board covers all our tenants and leaseholders in London, except those in the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, Brent and Spelthorne. This local board now includes former Kensington Housing Trust residents in Hammersmith & Fulham and Westminster. Paul Evans is chair of the west London local board.
Paul will be overseeing the services we provide for residents in west London and will strive to improve them. ‘People want us to get things right, fix them when they go wrong, and do it well’, he says. Paul is committed to ensuring that the creation of local boards will improve services for local people.’
Kensington and Chelsea local board
The Kensington and Chelsea local board covers tenants and leaseholders in the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea. Ian Williams is chair of the Kensington and Chelsea local board.
Ian firmly believes that Catalyst becoming one company with local boards, will help us to improve housing services to our customers. ‘The local boards will have the voice to say what needs to change and the power to ensure that what is agreed gets done.’
Brent local board
The Brent local board covers tenants and leaseholders in the borough of Brent. Susan Parsonage is chair of the Brent local board.
Susan is passionate about making sure local services are delivered effectively. ‘The local board is there to listen to local people and make sure Catalyst takes on these views when making decisions. A huge amount of work has been done in the past to deliver what residents want and we want to build on that.’
South East local board
The south east local board covers all tenants and leaseholders outside of London, with the exception of those in Spelthorne. Alison Knocker is chair of the south east local board.
