Family Housing Association has residents at the heart of its governance structure. Our Board has two tenant members and we have a Customer Panel that oversees all of our work. Our Board consists of nine volunteers, who give up their time freely to help guide the Association through the challenges it faces. Each Board Member has valuable knowledge and experience that has contributed to the strong position that the Association is in today. We are always looking for new Board Members with appropriate skills or experience. Anyone interested in becoming a Board Member should contact the Chief Executive.
During 2013 we undertook a wide ranging review of Governance. As part of this review we introduced a new Membership Policy and adopted the latest version of the National Housing Federation Model Rules. We also meet the National Housing Federation Excellence in Governance Standard.
Our Customer Panel is made up of tenants of the Association. Our aim is to have representation on our Panel from all the areas where we operate. The Panel meets twice a year and they review all aspects of our work, including our Policies and the Business Plan. All recommendations of the Panel are presented to the Board. Any tenant interested in becoming a member of the Customer Panel should contact the office.
