Della Butcher - Co-ordinator
My background is as a housing professional spending the past 20 years working for various local authorities including: Middlesbrough Council, Birmingham City Council and Warwick District Council within a variety of roles.
At Daventry District Council I was initially employed as a Community Projects Officer, delivering a variety of projects, events and campaigns to support and inform local communities, vulnerable people and the elderly. This included developing Daventry’s first ever Job Club, being the supporting Officer for the Daventry & District Over Fifties Forum (DOF), and more recently organising and partnering many of Daventry’s WWI Centenary Commemoration events.
I also planned and delivered an event which has become a true family favourite in Daventry - the annual Family Cinema Day at Daventry Country Park.
I have been the Care and Repair Co-ordinator since May 2015 , a role that has seen me return to my housing roots. My hope is that Care & Repair Daventry District with continue to develop and evolve so we can help and assist even more of the district's residents to live in the comfort and security of their own homes for as long as possible and with as much support as possible.
