Transparency, openness and accountability are important principles across our sector, the public sector and beyond. Being open with residents, service users or supporters helps to build trust, allows for scrutiny and challenge and can lead to improvements in services.

The Federation believes that housing associations should be, and are, open and accountable organisations. The sector has led the way on some of these issues, for example, our members have routinely published information on chief executives’ remuneration for the last 15 years.

This briefing gives a short overview of the context to these issues and highlights some ways in which housing associations, as well as organisations from outside the sector, are upholding their commitments to transparency.
