A labour of love: My work as a housing and employment officer

Monica Chabria 2

Not many councils have a housing and employment officer, but Monica Chabria is one. In the first of our Frontline Stories series, she tells Olivia Barber about the role

The role of a housing and employment officer is a “unique” one. Unique in the sense that not many councils have one, but also because they are “uniquely positioned” to identify the barriers facing low-income families, as they see residents every day. Monica Chabria, a housing and employment officer in the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea is one such person.
