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 April 2012, the Scottish Housing Regulator published '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.scottishhousingregulator.gov.uk.

In the introduction to the required standards, the Regulator makes it clear that they expect social landlords such as Grampian Housing Association to assess themselves against the standards and to report this to tenants.  As a body committed to good governance, the Association undertook this 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.

Further updates will be provided as the Association continues to build on this solid foundation of good governance.
