“This list is the first of its kind compiled by Inside Housing, and gives exposure to those who are leading and driving progress in the Scottish Housing sector.

Shona added: “Over the last 32 years I have been passionate in advocating the role of social housing in health and social care, as well as a consistent spokeswoman for its impact in tackling homelessness, poverty and driving regeneration. I hope that the combined strength of those on this list will push these messages further.”
