I previously worked for Birmingham City council for 38 years working for the Housing Department, and the Neighbourhood Advice and Information Service. During this time, I gained considerable experience in Welfare Benefits Entitlement and Housing Policy and Legislation
I took voluntary redundancy in November 2017, and joined the Northfield Community Partnership in December 2017
Since working at the Partnership, I have helped people with a wide range of issues such as benefit entitlement, completed housing registrations, offered advice to potentially homeless people, and have been able to sign posted them to the relevant partners, that could assist them with their homelessness.
I am enjoying working at the partnership, and have been able to utilise my experience to enable me to help people with their variety of enquires.
