About

The NHF 2020 Code of Governance is designed to help housing associations achieve the highest standards of governance and board excellenceIt is substantially different to previous versions and is intended to set stretching expectation. All housing associations adopting the Code will need to plan how they will achieve compliance in the next year.

We know it inside out, having written it on behalf of the NHF, and are really pleased to be able to offer four x 2 hour sessions, exploring different aspects of the Code in more depth.

Topic Description Speakers

Board Effectiveness

(3rd Feb)

This session will focus on Principle 3 of the new NHF Code of Governance: Board effectiveness. We’ll explore with you the new and more stretching requirements of this part of the Code – including expectations about maximum tenure, about diverse Board membership and about people with direct lived experience of communities served being meaningfully engaged in governance structures.

And we’ll hear from our speakers about how the Board can most effectively deliver its essential functions.

Risk & Assurance

(10th Feb)

The 2020 NHF Code of Governance contains strengthened requirements about the way in which Boards should actively manage the risks faced by organisations.

We’ll explore these requirements at this masterclass, encouraging you to reflect on how they might translate into practice, and what might need to change culturally and in terms of process to support compliance.

Taking Code compliance as a baseline, our speakers will talk about how Boards can gain confidence that sound understanding and management of risk is supporting the organisation to achieve its vision.

People & Culture

(17th Feb)

 

 

There is a new emphasis in the 2020 NHF Code of Governance on people and culture, including embedding equality, diversity and inclusion in governance. At this masterclass our speakers will explore – and encourage you to explore – what the requirements of the new Code might mean in practice, including what sorts of conversation Boards might need to have on these topics, what insight they will need to support good governance, and how they can ensure that change is meaningful and has impact.

Residents

(24th Feb)

 

Alongside the NHF’s Together with Tenants Charter, the new NHF Code of Governance emphasises the importance of accountability to residents and of placing the needs and safety of current and future residents at the heart of strategic decision-making. Our speakers will discuss what this means in practice for organisations, and how the requirements fit with what’s in the recent social housing white paper. You’ll be encouraged to explore how Boards can best ensure they have genuine insight into the views and needs or residents, and how they can demonstrate meaningful accountability. CT:

CT Webinar: The 15 minute neighbourhood
Fred J Davies

The leadership course has been great. Lots of different ways to explore new ideas, and new concepts. I have found it interesting to reflect on my own ways of working, and how I work with others in teams and as individuals. The online sessions have been well structured using interesting techniques, such as meditation and breathing exercises to ensure that people feel that they are working together whilst being home based.
