Aisling Gallagher

Aisling Gallagher

Resident Case Worker

I became interested in being a caseworker after getting support and help from a local advocacy charity during a difficult period in my life, and saw the difference having someone fight my corner made. I am interested in ensuring housing and redevelopment meet the needs of the community, especially for residents who need extra support. The link between housing quality and good mental health is something I’m really passionate about, seeing first-hand how much difference an affordable, secure home made to my health and my quality of life. In the past I have volunteered doing benefits advice at a local homelessness charity, worked for a charity on equal access to live music for disabled people and worked as a research assistant in a university.

Clare Poulson

Clare Poulson

Family Project Worker

Clare's role has been generously funded by the National Lottery; "I am an ex Aylesbury resident, I lived on Wendover for 10 years. During that time, I was fortunate enough to be working on the estate developing a project for Young Carers and their families. I then took a bit of time out to have my three lovely children, but continued to work with local charities delivering parenting courses and support as well as life skills courses for people managing on a low income. I am so happy to be back working on the Aylesbury estate! My new role will involve supporting families especially those in temporary accommodation, getting the community together for fun activities and events as well as providing some training and support in parenting and budgeting.
