Tabitha Kassem, Executive Director of Governance at the Network Housing Group, is a trained lawyer and former Legal Director at the Howard League for Penal Reform.

Tabitha Kassem said: “I’m honoured to be joining the Nacro Council of Trustees. Ensuring that disadvantaged young people and adults reach their full potential through appropriate and good quality housing and support, especially upon release from custody is critical, now more than ever, to strengthen our communities and prevent crime. I look forward to bringing my experience of working as a solicitor with and for those in, or affected by, the criminal justice system, together with my social housing expertise, to help those that need it most, with an organisation that has and continues to achieve so much.”
