SFHA briefing on SHR's Regulatory Framework consultation

Following its discussion paper issued earlier in 2023, the SHR has published a formal consultation paper, requesting views on its Regulatory Framework. The SHR is seeking views by 15 December, with a view to publishing a final version of the Framework in February 2024 (coming into force in April 2024). An SFHA briefing, summarising the key proposed changes included within the paper and its appendices, is now available.

SHR draft asset management guidance

EICRs and the Annual Assurance Statement

SFHA has provided members with some further suggested template wording for use in the Annual Assurance Statement.  The wording can be used in respect of Electrical Inspection Certificate Reports (EICRs) when access has not been possible due to the pandemic.


Potential SFHA Governing Body Members' Forum and Conference

SFHA is keen to explore additional methods to directly reach governing body members (GBMs).  Their views would greatly benefit our consultation responses and much of the guidance we produce as part of our Get Governance offering would be enhanced with more GBM input.   To this end, we are looking to gauge interest in SFHA forming a forum specifically for GBMs.  This would be similar to the Governance Forum in format.


Digital governance guidance now available

SFHA guidance looking at digital governance is now available to all SFHA members. This is the next piece in SFHA's Get Governance series and we commissioned Linda Ewart to develop the document on our behalf. Please note that this guidance does not look at the technological side of digital governance, but instead focuses on ensuring governance remains effective even when meetings etc are not in the same room.  This piece of work brings together and updates a lot of the guidance SFHA produced during Covid in this area.


SFHA Peer Support List

As part of our Get Governance offering to members, we are keen to establish mechanisms to enable SFHA to refer members to sources of support when they need it the most.  To this end, we are seeking volunteers to populate a list that we can draw upon should we be contacted by an SFHA member seeking support.
