CIEH has five member-led policy advisory panels covering key policy areas for environmental health; Housing, Environmental Protection, Food Safety, Public Health, and Health and Safety. The panels include representatives from all regions and nations of the UK so that CIEH’s work is informed by a variety of perspectives and experiences. Everyone on the panel is a CIEH member and works with the organisation on a volunteer basis.
To highlight the vital role members play within the organisation, and to strengthen their voice and influence in shaping CIEH’s policy and campaigning activities, CIEH embarked on a sweeping refresh of all of its policy advisory panels. This refresh has allowed all members who want to be involved to engage with CIEH, and also to ensure that each policy panel has a diverse membership that truly reflects the wider profession.
Consisting of 19 environmental health professionals, the Housing Policy Advisory Panel includes CIEH members with expertise across local government, the third sector, and academia:
Anees Mank - Housing Development and Contracts Manager, Oldham Council
Carlene M Thomas - Senior Setting the Standards Inspection Officer, London Borough of Ealing/Commissioning Alliance
Dick Scott - Housing & Environment Consultant, Monitor BCS UK Ltd
Ross Matthewman, Head of Policy and Campaigns at CIEH, said:
“We are delighted to announce the membership of our vital Housing Policy Advisory Group. The breadth of experience and backgrounds from across the country will strengthen our work as we embark on a full schedule of campaigning on housing standards and sustainability.
The refresh of our policy panels further highlights our commitment to ensuring that members are at the heart of our policy and campaigning work.”
