SFHA Briefing: Putting Safety First

SFHA Briefing: Putting Safety First

The Scottish Federation of Housing Associations (SFHA) recently published the second briefing in their “Putting Safety First” series. It has been developed by Campbell Tickell on behalf of the SFHA in partnership with the Association of Local Authority Chief Housing Officers (ALACHO) and Chartered Institute of Housing (CIH). The Scottish Housing Regulator (SHR) also helped support the project.

This briefing note expands on a webinar Campbell Tickell delivered in March 2023 aimed at governing body members of Registered Social Landlords (RSLs).

The note will be of particular interest to the board/committee members of RSLs in Scotland and elected councillors in Scottish local authorities which own and manage social housing. Whilst the briefing is not a comprehensive guide to what is a highly complex area of legislation and regulation, it aims to give governing body members (GBMs) the background knowledge and perspective they need to discharge their responsibilities. It suggests key areas where GBMs should be focusing their scrutiny, and the questions they could be asking.

Registered SFHA members can access this briefing using this link.
