|13/06/2019||Earlier this year, Keith Molony, our Chief Executive for the last 17 years, informed the Board of Family Housing that he would like to retire over the next twelve months. The Board held an independently facilitated away day to discuss the future of the Association and decided that our tenants and the local community would be best served by Family Housing remaining independent. A consultant was appointed to manage the recruitment of our new Chief Executive. If you are interested in applying for the post, please click here for more information.|
|01/04/2019||The National Housing Federation is working on a project called 'Together with Tenants' that aims to build a stronger relationship between Housing Associations and their Tenants. They are holding an open consultation on their plan that can be found at https://www.housing.org.uk/topics/together-with-tenants/. Our tenants are encouraged to read the proposals and to complete an on-line questionnaire at http://www.surveygizmo.com/s3/4849220/Together-with-Tenants-Consultation. The survey closing date is 19th April 2019.|
|01/03/2019||The Government has confirmed that from 1st April 2020, Housing Association rents will increase by inflation (CPI) plus 1%. Our tenants will still see a 1% reduction in their rent in April this year. It is important that those tenants that claim Universal Credit or Housing Benefit remember to inform the authorities of their change in rent.|
