Catherine Kirkham

Community Housing Officer

Catherine’s role is to provide guidance and support to community groups interested in the process of developing community-led housing schemes. Local people can influence the building of homes that are truly affordable and suitable for local people. Community-led housing is a creative solution that is becoming increasingly popular in the UK as recognition grows of the value local people bring to housing development; after all, local people know their area better than anyone.

Catherine is originally from Flintshire in North Wales and previously worked as a Rural Housing Enabler for Action Hampshire. Catherine has a Master’s degree in Town and Regional Planning from the University of Liverpool.
