Solicitor joins WISH NW Board

A solicitor in the Housing & Regeneration Team at Forbes Solicitors has recently been appointed as a board member of Women in Social Housing North West.

Amy Hunter joined the board following a competitive interview stage and will spend the first three months in the role shadowing a fellow board member to gain an insight into how the organisation operates.

WISH NW is a business and support network for women working in Social Housing and is focused on encouraging women to consider the Housing Sector as a career and supporting them once they have joined. WISH NW offers members business networking events, Housing Sector updates and opportunities to engage with young women to encourage them to join the Sector.

At Forbes Amy represents social landlords in relation to all aspects of housing management work but deals predominantly with cases involving antisocial behaviour, breach of tenancy and hoarding. On her appointment, she commented: “I am thrilled to join the WISH NW board, it will be a great opportunity not just for me personally but for Forbes’ Housing & Regeneration department as a whole.”
