Tim Seward

EiDA16 Winner

Diversity Champion Award for Housing

Tim has demonstrated an outstanding personal commitment inside and outside of his role as Head of Property Sales at Circle Housing. He has clearly gone above and beyond the call of duty to have a transformational impact on homeless people’s lives. For the last 15 years, Tim and his partner John, have been foster carers with The Albert Kennedy Trust, who support LGBT homeless young people in crisis. They give them a place to stay, but also teach them life skills and provide them with the tools to get into employment or education. Tim also assists in training new foster carers and regularly raises funds for AKT; his last fundraising event raised over ¬£7,000. Tim connected the charity with his employer which resulted in Circle providing the charity with a house to be used as a homeless shelter for short stay accommodation for LGBT teenagers. He is also Senior Sponsor of Circle’s LGBT Network Group, and works tirelessly to promote an inclusive workplace culture by keeping Diversity and Inclusion at the top of the agenda.
