This research study assesses how well housing association Boards meet certain standards of governance in use across Wales.

The purpose of the study, is to:

  • assess the effectiveness of the current governance practices of housing associations and community mutuals against the standards of governance set out in Community Housing Cymru’s Charter for Good Governance and against key features of the Regulatory Framework
  • consider relevant matters about governance and debates in other related sectors to identify lessons for the housing association sector
  • to help future proof and support fit-for-purpose governance among housing associations, identifying training, development and capacity building needs to strengthen the approach to and practice of governance to meet future challenges, which include an increasingly difficult financial environment and the impact of welfare reform
  • to stimulate a greater focus on good governance and continuous improvement as the basis for a well-run sector.
