She is also a Board member of Sutton Housing Society and the collaborative MMC group, ‘Building Better’; is a Chartered Member of the Chartered Institute of Housing; a Full Member of the Association of Project Managers and MSP Programme Manager.
Ali previously worked for a housing association specialising in extra care development developing an interest in older persons housing and now exploring how this model can deliver interesting and innovative solutions for sustainability and her career has focused on development and sales where she has held a number of roles and provided consultancy services.
Ali explains why she has joined the GHA board:
“I have always been an advocate for delivering sustainable housing, and when we at Raven Housing Trust committed to Net Zero Carbon, Good Homes Alliance became a valuable resource for me, both with my development hat on but also as an executive director exploring our retrofit programme. Working with GHA has, and continues to, help us navigate the changing landscape, definitions and monitoring. I wanted to get involved to advocate for GHA across the sector, and support the national conversations and policy influence, having been frustrated with increasingly watered down policies.”
