Following a hugely successful pilot last year, the Sector Scorecard launched for the whole sector at the Housing Finance Conference and Exhibition on 14 March.
13 March 2018
The Sector Scorecard aims to provide an agreed set of high level metrics for housing associations to compare their performance and check they are delivering value for money.
It demonstrates the sector’s accountability to stakeholders, and includes measurements ranging from the number of new homes built to customer satisfaction.
The Sector Scorecard has broad support across the housing sector and was welcomed by the Government. It is governed by an independent advisory group made up of housing associations, the National Housing Federation and the Chartered Institute of Housing. Housemark and Acuity are again providing data support to the initiative.
Some slight changes will be made to the performance indicators based on feedback from the pilot and these will be communicated shortly. We are keen for housing associations to start adding their data as soon as possible but acknowledge that some of the data, particularly finance data, may need updating later in the year – you’ll receive information on how to do this once you’ve signed up to take part.
To take part, all you will need to do is get in touch via the website to confirm your interest. We’ll need contact details for the senior person who is authorised to make this decision on behalf of your organisation (chief executive or finance director) and the person who will be responsible for providing the data.
Most of the data asked for will be information that many associations already collect and clear guidance will be provided.
For smaller associations (with fewer than 1,000 units), Acuity has kindly offered to provide additional support in collecting this data.
If you have any questions, please contact Will Jeffwitz.
