The role of the National Welfare Reform Group is to provide strategic direction and act as a sounding board at a national level for our work on welfare reform.
The role of the group is to:
The group’s specific activities and work plan will be driven in part by the strategic direction laid out by the National Housing Federation’s Board and in part by changes in the external operating environment. The group will maintain a strategic focus, as this is where it best adds value to the NHF and sector and will ensure its areas of focus remain consistent with the strategic themes listed above.
The group is not a governance mechanism, so the onus will be on debate and engagement rather than lengthy papers and minutes. You will need to be able to attend a minimum of three of our four core meetings a year. What we promise you in return is a dynamic space with the opportunity to contribute to the NHF's policy-making, with high quality facilitation and support from our staff.
