Dipna PattniHousing Partnerships Manager at Gravesham Borough Council
I started working for Gravesham Borough Council in 2001 and my current post, Housing Partnerships Manager enables me to deliver my greatest ambition to help improve health and wellbeing of those vulnerable households in our communities. My role involves work around energy efficiency, disabled adaptions and corporate performance.
I currently also Chair the Kent Energy Efficiency Partnership. The work of the Partnership is to deliver county wide projects through the aims and objectives set out in the Fuel Poverty Strategy for Kent. Working alongside Health organisations is fundamental to target precise delivery on fuel poverty and carbon reduction.
Having achieved good academic level in Public Health and Environmental Health and my background to business and finance, this enables me to levy external funding for those key projects in our community. I have also worked voluntary for community groups to deliver funding for cultural events, music and art.
