Governance is the framework at the heart of a successful housing association. It sets standards of leadership and control and helps the board to define values by which the organisation will operate.

The NHF has a wide variety of governance resources to support different areas of a housing association governance. Our code of governance is adopted by many members and we support this with additional resources covering a broad range of specific topic areas, from data retention to board appraisal and evaluation.
