Our board governs our business. It sets our direction and goals. It also makes sure we stay financially strong and meet the standards set out by the government’s Regulator of Social Housing. Members come from all walks of life and bring a wide range of talent and experience. They work voluntarily and have a shared passion for social housing and investing in communities.
