Si started at entry level within Stockport Council's housing management services 30 years ago and worked his way up through a variety of roles. Si has been a head of service previously with responsibility for neighbourhoods, customer access and social inclusion, and a strong focus on modernising services. In addition, he has experience of securing and delivering contracts and accessing new funding streams. Si is extremely passionate about genuinely engaging with, and improving outcomes for customers and now as Director of SKylight he is placed perfectly to achieve this with a clear focus on a broad range of support and engagement related services, including customer engagement, social inclusion, anti-poverty, telecare, older people, employment, specialist and generic housing support, and housing options and homelessness provision.
