Interesting article. I fully agree that we must engage with young people, after all they will possibly become th tenants of he future
But in the article was Paul Bridge misquoted as chief executive of Homes for Haringey? Is it a chief executives role to appoint the the board or is it the board themselves who appoint they members. How can a board be independent and challenge if they are appointed by the chief executive.
In advising landlords Derekston James is quoted as saying he can speak with his peers and engage better with young people, this is fine but they also need to be able to engage with all sectors of the community if initiatives such as this is do be of benefit to the community.
A great initiative and a good example of what should be replicated across the country
