Welcome to WISH North East

Chair Caroline Gitsham has been involved in social housing for over 30 years, and was inspired to set up the WISH North East region after reading about the Women in Housing Awards, supported by WISH. With the help of an existing contact she had in WISH North West set about forming a new region.

We have some incredible trail blazing women in the North East housing world and we’re delighted to be able to set up this new WISH region which will give 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.

For more information about our region please contact: northeast@wishgb.co.uk
