An opportunity to join the Board of a fast-growing charitable housing association, working across north and east London. Newlon’s ethos remains firmly rooted in the belief that high quality affordable homes and services have the power to make a positive difference to people’s lives and life chances.
In this role you will also contribute to the vital work of Outward, our specialist care and support subsidiary.

Outward enable people with learning disabilities, people on the autism spectrum, as well as vulnerable older and young people, to have greater choice, independence and control over how they live their lives.
