“Heylo is on a social mission to make home ownership affordable for more people. The heylo team has a long track record of great relationships with its stakeholders, partners and customers, and its home ownership solutions are UK-wide – not regional, or just London based – which makes it very special.”
Salma is a member of the HHRP Board. Salma Shah is a communications, public policy and government affairs expert, with over 10 years’ experience in Westminster and Whitehall.
Salma was Special Adviser responsible for strategy, policy and communication across the several government departments. She served in the UK government from May 2014, in the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS), the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS) and the Ministry of Housing, Communities & Local Government (MHCLG) leaving Government, after serving in the Home Office.
Prior to this Salma was a journalist at the BBC, producing the Today programme on Radio 4.
“Good housing is a central component to building a secure and prosperous life. Shared ownership is a transformative product for people aiming to get on the housing ladder so supporting a talented, professional team to deliver homes that people can build their lives in is a huge privilege."
“I love the energy and passion, a small but dedicated team making a profound difference in the sector. Having worked in affordable housing for a number of years, heylo was an opportunity too good to miss.”
