Mandy said: “I was brought up in council housing and strongly believe everyone should be able to live in a good quality and safe home.  I am thrilled to have been appointed to Platform’s Board, the organisation has a strong reputation and it is good to be back in housing again, particularly as there are so many challenges.  I hope I can help the Board and the wider team achieve our strategic objectives and make a positive difference for our customers.”
