Annual Assurance Statement 2021
The Co-operative is pleased to publish our Annual Assurance Statement which was approved by our Committee at their meeting held on the 19 October 2021.
This statement outlines how the Co-operative complies with the regulatory requirements of the Scottish Housing Regulator. Please have a look at this statement here.
We would also like to add that additional to the statement, the Co-operative is also assured that we are working towards having appropriate systems in place for the collection of equalities data. We are assured that we are working towards using this data to take account of equality and human rights issues in our decisions, policy making and our service delivery.
Annual Assurance Statement
Registered Social landlords (RSLs) must submit to the Scottish Housing Regulator an Annual Assurance Statement providing assurance that the RSL complies with the relevant requirements of chapter 3 of the Regulatory Framework. This includes regulatory requirements that apply to all social landlords and the Standards of Governance and Financial Management that apply to Registered Social Landlords (RSLs).
The Statement should be made and submitted by the RSL’s governing body.
We previously published information to our tenants on the new regulatory framework for social housing in Scotland. The Scottish Housing Regulator (SHR) has published our engagement plan.
The SHR do not require any further assurance from Garrion People’s Housing Co-op at this point in time other than the annual regulatory returns required from all Registered Social Landlords (RSLs).
We will submit our Annual Assurance Statement over the coming months and the SHR will review our status in October.
