Welcome to WISH North East.

We're a group for women who work in or have involvement with the social housing sector within the North East region. In the current economic climate, professional networking is more important than ever. Joining WISH North East gives our members excellent opportunities to network with women at all stages of their careers and across the whole range of organisations who operate in the Sector – both private and public.

WISH North East's Chair, Crystal Hicks has a passion for using her skills and experience to benefit others, such as giving some interim support Oasis Community Housing as well as leading and co-leading WISH North East and Chartered Institute of Housing (North East) boards. She is also training to be a mentor for the CIH whilst finishing her MBA.

We have some incredible trail blazing women in the North East housing world and we’re delighted to have this WISH region which gives women the opportunity to engage with their peers and make new connections. As well as professionals, we are keen to be accessible to women living in social housing actively involved in the sector.
