CHC appoints new director of policy

Community Housing Cymru (CHC) has appointed Clarissa Corbisiero-Peters as its new director of policy.

She is currently head of policy at the National Housing Federation, the English equivalent of CHC. In this role, she works with housing associations to influence government and other key stakeholders on housing policy issues including reclassification, the Right to Buy and welfare reform. Clarissa has previously worked for the Local Government Association and Hounslow and Birmingham Councils.

Clarissa said:

‘I am delighted to have been appointed as Director of Policy at Community Housing Cymru. I am looking forward to joining a team that is already leading the housing sector in Wales and achieving great things. Whilst I am sad to be leaving the team at the National Housing Federation, I am excited about playing my part in creating an operating environment that supports housing associations in Wales to continue to invest in their communities and change people’s lives.’

Stuart Ropke, CHC’s chief executive, said:

‘Clarissa will bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to the role as well as a real passion to put members at the heart of everything we do. We look forward to welcoming her to CHC.’

Clarissa, who is originally from Swansea, will head up CHC’s policy and external affairs team and start her new role at the beginning of July.

CHC is focusing on several post-election priorities to ensure that housing remains a key issue in Wales when the new government is in place, and Clarissa will play an integral role in leading on these priorities.
