Community Links welcomes new Chief Executive

We are delighted to welcome Arvinda Gohil as our new Chief Executive, who has joined the organisation this week.

Arvinda has worked in the not-for-profit, social enterprise and charitable sector for 35 years and has a wealth of experience in community driven housing and support related services.

Arvinda has held a number of senior posts including Chief Executive of Emmaus UK, director of the National Housing Federation, assistant director at The Housing Corporation, and Chief Executive successively at Inquilab Housing Association and Unity Housing Association.

Arvinda says: “I am delighted to be joining Community Links at such a challenging and exciting time.”

“Community Links has strong roots in the local community and organisations such as ours have a key role to play in creating sustainable and empowering environments for people, families and communities.”

Michael Smyth, Chairman of the charity, says: "The Board are in no doubt that Community Links will flourish under Arvinda’s stewardship."

“Arvinda has very significant experience across the whole of the social justice space. We are delighted she has joined us and will lead the organisation in the next stage of its evolution.”

Community Links will be launching a new three year strategy in the coming months: ‘Acting early to tackle poverty.’
