Thank you to those who attended the webinar, we hope you enjoyed it.
In this webinar we looked at how to equip housing association boards with better understanding of use and importance of social value measurements, in order to incorporate this approach in their strategic outlook and resource allocation.
SFHA recognise the important that member associations have the best opportunity to calculate and use social value measurements and through the Social Value Toolkit we have provided resources to support this approach.
Being able to demonstrate the impact associations are making, shows the additional value of social housing and illustrates the ways in which the sector is contributing to a healthier and happier Scotland.
HACT's NED Network
Wider support for board members is being supported through our Social Impact Partner HACT’s Ned Network. The NED Network will meet fortnightly from 10th May and each session will be hosted by a Non-Exec Director involved as part of a housing association board. Each meeting will explore a key topic relevant to their governance role. These will include how Boards talk about racial equality and how Board members can scrutinise transformation programmes.
If you are interested in the NED network and would like to find out more, including information on how to join each meeting please contact Thames Menteth-Wheelwright. at HACT.
