Sussex Home Improvement Agency Manager
Nick is currently the Selective Licensing and Housing Manager at Croydon Borough Council. He has had over 25 years of work with Local Authorities supporting standards, improvements and adaptations in the private sector. At Wandsworth Council he was the Manager of the Home Improvement Agency for a period of eight years. It was during his time at Wandsworth that the first support service, WHARF, was established.
“Having worked in the public sector for such a long period, it is very clear how many residents can remain independent with only the smallest intervention. Many do not know who to contact or are too proud. Sussex Home Improvement Agency aims to brings together many housing related support services that can work together to help residents stay safely and securely at home. We will also support residents with major adaptations and provide introductory housing training to front line staff. Sussex HIA was formed in 2017 and with the help of a supportive board and staff will grow to become an active, supportive and well valued Sussex service.”
