We’re reviewing our Code of Governance with a view to publishing a new version, which will reflect timely issues affecting our sector, such as accountability to residents, health and safety, and equality and diversity in our organisations.
We have designed a three-stage review process to ensure that all of our members – as well as residents and stakeholders – have the opportunity to feed into this review.
This first phase of the consultation – on the core principles framing the code.
(Closed 13 March)
We appointed Campbell Tickell to work with us and our advisory group on the drafting of a new code. The new draft, which has been informed by responses to our first phase consultation, is being shared with members and stakeholders in our final phase consultation.
We launched this phase of the consultation on 5 August, and it is open until 6 September 2020. Find out more.
In the final phase of the consultation, we are sharing the draft code with members and stakeholders for their input. We had originally planned to launch this phase in May 2020. However, due to the coronavirus crisis, we postponed the consultation so that we could focus our resources on supporting our members through the immediate challenges. We are now in a position to resume this important work, and launched the final phase of the consultation on 5 August until 6 September 2020.
We plan to publish the final code in November 2020.
Our advisory group is guiding the development of a new NHF Code of Governance. The members of the group bring with them a wide range of expertise and perspectives in the housing sector and beyond.
