Joint CWAG /NFA Report 'Excellence in Management and Partnership' published November 2021

The report is based on a year-long examination of council-ALMO structures and relationships. It reviews the range of models of management, partnership and assurance that have evolved between ALMOs and their parent councils and aims to inform conversations between local authorities and their ALMOs on the key areas of performance, assurance, and compliance. The report is particularly timely given the challenges of the post-pandemic recovery and the need to respond to the Social Housing White Paper and new regulatory environment.
 

The report also includes a governance and assurance toolkit developed during the review. This aims to help councils track their compliance with the imminent changes to landlord responsibilities and their ALMOs’ operational compliance on the tasks delegated to them. The 34-point toolkit checklist particularly addresses good governance and the new emphasis on tenant engagement and the tenant voice.
