The Regional Manager for the East of England is Christine Spooner. Chris's role is to help build the capacity of the homeless sector by sharing best practice and providing practical advice and support to local services.
The East of England is a diverse region with 47 Local Authorities.
Chris has a background in managing the development and delivery of projects and services for people at risk of social exclusion. Before moving to Homeless Link in 2010, Chris had gained many years experience of working on multi-agency projects - partnerships between Local Authorities, Health and the Voluntary Sector.
Chris has worked closely with service-users to develop programmes which would support them in moving towards inclusion and employability, has managed a resettlement service and is an experienced bid-writer. She is particularly interested in service user involvement and multi-agency approaches to meeting complex needs.
