Elaine Elkington – Board Member
Elaine has an extensive background in public sector housing and is a Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Housing; for 6 years she held a position of Trustee on their Governing Body.
In the last 7 years, Elaine has worked as a freelance consultant in housing, development, regeneration and planning in both public, private and housing association sectors. She has worked at Executive level in some national challenging roles such as interim CEO at Kensington and Chelsea Tenant Management Organisation after the Grenfell Tragedy.
Elaine’s passion for choice and quality in elder persons’ housing stems from her experience in the public sector and a belief that affordability should not be a bar to enjoying good housing in later life.
She is also a Trustee of Standing Together Against Domestic Violence, a national charity which campaigns for justice for victims and cross-sector structural reform across all services to eliminate the causes of domestic abuse.
