WLM is delighted that from January 2022, Jamie Hickling, our WLM Area Manager - South, has been appointed as co-chair of HouseProud-LGBT. This is a network, set up in 2014, for LGBT people working in social housing. It now has representatives from over 50 organisations.
HouseProud aims to be a forum for sharing information and promoting best practice across the industry, supporting members in their development. It seeks to raise awareness of LGBT issues across the industry, influencing policy and decision-makers, developing partnerships and improving service delivery for all service users.

Of his appointment Jamie says, “HouseProud has been a real lifeline for me in terms of development opportunities and support networks. I’m pleased to be able to support the work of HouseProud as Co-chair and look forward to strengthening the unity of purpose over the next year.” Meanwhile in WLM's services, as we continue to work to be an inclusive organisation, we are pleased for Jamie and wish him well in the role!
