Our Chair, Phil Morgan
I have lived in Salford for 7 years and my work and my passion is empowering people.
I am a leading specialist working with a range of social landlords and tenants on regulatory compliance, good governance, tenant scrutiny, and involvement. I am also a speaker and commentator.
I was formerly Chief Executive of TPAS (Tenants' Participation Advisory Service) for 10 years and a senior housing regulator. Currently, I am on the Board of the Guinness Partnership and was previously a Board Member of New Prospect Housing in Salford.
I have always volunteered and have previously been a school governor at 12 different schools. This included being Chair of Governors of Old Trafford Community School, leading it from special measures to one of the most improved schools in the country. I was also Vice President of Old Trafford Credit Union and a Trafford Councillor for 5 years.
I have been a Healthwatch Salford volunteer for two and half years, leading on the Healthier Together consultation. I am looking forward to Chairing Healthwatch Salford again and ensuring it speaks for Salford residents.
