Fay Yeomans, Yorkshire Coast Homes

“As a brand new board member of a housing association with an unrelated background in radio production, journalism and acting as a union representative, i found the mentoring scheme invaluable.

My mentor had many years experience in the housing sector and was instrumental in adding to my previously limited knowledge and in boosting my confidence in my ability to make meaningful contributions at board meetings. He helped me gain a better understanding of priorities when reading board papers and advised me of the sort of things on which I needed to focus to become a better and more capable board member.

I am extremely grateful that my board chair put me forward for the mentoring scheme and hope it will help make me a more effective and useful board member.”
