Muir staffJoanne Commons - Community Housing Manager

I really enjoy being part of a great team, tackling changes and challenges and ensuring we provide the best service we can to our residents in North Yorkshire and Lancashire.

Before becoming the North Team's Community Housing Manager, I worked predominantly on rent arrears and income.


Muir staff Emma Ashton - Tenancy Services Officer

I love my role as a Tenancy Services Officer as it gives me the opportunity to help people find their forever family home along with offering additional support such as money and benefit advice and tenancy sustainment. 

However, I love to sing and when I was (a lot) younger, I was also the lead singer in a rock band! 

The areas I manage are Fylde, Wyre, Skelmersdale and West Lancashire. 

I have a mixture of flats and houses and work closely with partnership agencies in those areas to provide support and create sustainable tenancies. 


Muir staff Liz Christian - Community Housing Assistant

I feel so lucky to work for an organisation that truly puts the customer first.

I enjoy meeting and assisting residents old and new and enjoy the broad range of challenges my role brings.

I support all members of the team to cover Muir's North region and previously worked in Housing for the Local Authority and the Ministry of Defence.


Muir staff Kenny Haslam - Income Services Officer

My job is to help Muir residents resolve any issues they have to pay their rent and maintain their tenancies.  I have experience of working within many different roles in the housing sector, but feel I have found my niche in income services.

Covering Burnley, Colne, Blackpool, Bradford and Brompton, I enjoy meeting residents and feel everyone is entitled to a safe and secure home.

Money can be stressful for everyone so I hope to ease some of that pressure by providing my expertise in a friendly and welcoming manner.


Muir staff Barbara Stephenson - Tenancy Services Officer

I love working for Muir and have become close to many of my colleagues who are brilliant.

I have got to know many residents really well in my role covering the Blackpool area and I think this makes my job easier and offers them a very consistent service.

Dealing with new-build scheme is so exciting as nearly everyone who moves in has come from something a lot worse and they are keen to change their lives for the better. Being a part of that process is very fulfilling.

Muir provides a lot of care and support to residents and it feels good when you can actually see the difference you can make for people in need.
