Torus Foundation is delighted to announce that our Managing Director, Kate Shone, has been appointed as Chair of Communities that Work.

As the national body of social landlords, Communities that Work aims to transform lives for good, by enabling housing providers to support people into rewarding, sustainable employment.

This is an exciting position for Kate to undertake, in which she will be helping to drive and reinforce the message that the link of housing and employment are integral for the benefit of our communities.
