The Glasgow Alliance to End Homelessness is delighted to welcome David Bookbinder to our Advisory Council.

His housing career began at the London Borough of Hillingdon in the 1980s and then at Age Concern England.

The Advisory Council support and challenge our Alliance Leadership Team as we work to transform services across the city and deliver creative and innovative solutions to end homelessness. David joins a group of experts and changemakers who bring significant experience and knowledge across homelessness and contributory areas. Other members include Sir Harry Burns and Dr Ligia Texia, CEO of Centre for Homelessness Impact.

On joining the Advisory Council, David says:

‘The provision of good housing support is critical to tenancy sustainment for housing associations, and the work of the Alliance is therefore of huge importance to GWSF and its members.’
