Nahim Yakub, Emerging Futures Housing Director

Nahim has a BA Honours in Professional Housing Studies accredited by the Chartered Institute of Housing and brings a wealth of housing knowledge and experience to Emerging Futures. He started his housing career 20 years ago with the Local Authority in Blackburn, providing front-line housing support services to local residents and new people dispersed to Blackburn. This experience gave him insight and expertise in understanding the strategic and regulatory role of local authorities in housing a range of different client groups.
