Shelter confirms appointment of new Director of Services

Society recently worked with leading housing and homelessness charity Shelter to appoint Alison Mohammed as its new Director of Services. This is an exciting role that sits alongside Chief Executive Campbell Robb to develop and oversee Shelter’s advice, representation and support services.

Alison joins from Rethink Mental Illness, where she was Chief Operating Officer since 2012 and previously Director of Services. Prior to joining Rethink, she worked for Mencap and before that was Chief Executive of Hammersmith PCG, in the NHS.

Alison firmly believes that there is a strong crossover between having a decent place to live and good mental health and wellbeing, and is keen to drive forward Shelter’s innovative housing support services.

Alison commented:

"Tanya from Society talked through the issues with me, taking my own wishes very much into account, as well as those of the client, so I never felt I was being railroaded into going for a job that wasn't really suitable for me. I felt as though Tanya really wanted to get the best for me, as well as for Shelter, and just nudged me gently into thinking about a job I probably wouldn't have considered otherwise."
