Running the AssociationInformation for tenants and residents

Grampian Housing Association is run and governed by a voluntary Board of Management made up of tenants, residents and people from the community who are committed to providing affordable homes for people in housing need.  A copy of our rules can be downloaded here.

We recognise the importance of good governance to protect the interests of our tenants and residents as well as people we hope to help in the future.  The Association is registered with the Scottish Housing Regulator (SHR) and we also recognise our responsibility to meet the standards the Regulator expects.  These are set down in legislation and guidance.

In February 2019, the Scottish Housing Regulator published the revised Regulatory Framework, 'Regulation of Social Housing in Scotland, Our Framework'.  This publication sets out how the Regulator will approach the regulation of social landlords in Scotland and also sets out those standards the Regulator expects of social landlords in regard to governance and financial management.

If you wish to find out more about this document and other regulatory matters, then please visit the Scottish Housing Regulator's website at www.housingregulator.gov.scot

The Regulator expects social landlords, such as Grampian Housing Association, to assess themselves against the standards and to report this to tenants.  The Association, as an organisation committed to good governance, has previously carried out self-assessments with the assistance of an independent external organisation.  Using someone external helped to ensure that the assessment was vigorous and complete as well as drawing on knowledge that those who carried out the assessment had in the area.

The Scottish Housing Regulator will now require associations, such as Grampian, to formally assess itself against the new framework and submit this to the Regulator. This assessment, to be called the Annual Assurance Statement, should be shared with tenants and the Association will also be working with tenants to see how they can play a part in this assessment.

As part of the new framework, each year the Association will receive a rating from the Regulator. This will be informed by a range of submissions Grampian is required to make including the Annual Assurance Statement. This will replace an earlier document called the Engagement Plan. A copy of the Association’s Engagement Plan can be found via this link Engagement Plan
