News Ruby Bhatti, OBE

Ruby Bhatti, Trustee of BDAT and a Board member of Dixons Academies Trust, is being honoured with an OBE for services to Young People and Housing.  A nominee for Governor of the Year at the 2018 Bradford Schools Awards, Ruby also has more than two decades of experience as a solicitor.

She was previously Chair of the BME Housing Association, is a non-executive Board member of Carlisle Business Centre, and also sits as a non-executive director in the social housing sector for Incommunities.

Ruby is also a governor at four schools and used to work for TRACKS Education, providing learning for children with medical needs which prevent them from attending mainstream school.

She said: “I feel really honoured and privileged to receive this recognition. The honour is also an extremely humbling one which I dedicate to my late parents who brought me up and always tried to help others. I also would not be where I am today without the support of my husband and daughter. I’m completely overwhelmed, but also very fortunate to work with so many amazing people across the district who have made a real difference to the lives of others. I hope this will inspire others to give something back to the community”.
