Our Board Members are all volunteers who share a commitment to providing a first class housing service to St Luke's tenants. As well as making sure that the buildings and finances are properly run, there is also a focus on developing our own community, and our place in the wider community.
The Board have a range of backgrounds and areas of interest and we are always looking for people who may be interested in joining us, bringing fresh viewpoints and ideas. If you think you may be interested, there is more information about what is involved here:

Malcolm worked in the motor industry at a senior level before taking early retirement in the late 1990s. Since then Malcolm has chaired a number of organisations in the public and charitable sectors including: Oxford City Primary Care Trust; Thames Valley Probation; PACT - Parents and Children Together (an adoption and fostering charity); and spent two years chairing a small part of the NHS called Supporting Public Health (preparing it for a possible privatisation). Currently Malcom chairs Oxfordshire Parenting Forum, and reads with children at Windale School.
