The role requires a commitment of at least four days a month and it is an opportunity to make an enormous difference to wide-ranging communities across the borough. 

Outgoing Chair of the Board, Jonathon Davies said:
“It has been a privilege and a delight to be the Chair of the Board at Tai Tarian for the past eight years. My replacement will soon realise that Tai Tarian is a wonderful organisation which is passionate about providing great homes and communities for its tenants.”
