Tributes paid to former CIH President and Grand Union Chair

Wednesday 17th of April 2024

Tributes have been paid to Steve Benson, former President of the Chartered Institute of Housing (CIH), who died on Sunday.

Steve had enjoyed a housing career lasting nearly 50 years and sadly passed away on 14 April with his family by his side.

His former colleagues at Grand Union described him as "a fearless champion for those who are homeless or badly housed" while the CIH said he was "universally liked" and self-deprecating, adding that "the way he dealt with his illness was utterly inspiring".
