Gold is treasurer of the PILC trustee board.

She grew up in Nigeria, the first daughter and second child of six. Her upbringing motivated her to seek a career fighting injustice and advocating for the rights of vulnerable people.

Gold has a master’s degree in international law and diplomacy from the University of Lagos and later studied housing management at Middlesex University London.

For the past 25 years, she has worked in various management roles delivering social housing and support services to vulnerable adults. In 2008 Gold joined one of the G15 housing associations, overseeing a budget of more than £5 million. In 2016 she was recognised with a ‘social value through commercial strength’ achievement award.

Gold feels in a unique position of responsibility working with some of society’s most vulnerable people. She has sought to develop a clear understanding of both the problems people face in society and what is needed to make a lasting improvement in areas including mental health, social exclusion and homelessness.
