Scottish Social Housing Charter

Annual Assurance Statement

In order to arrive at the following assumptions, our board was involved in the review of the Association’s Assurance Report. The purpose of this report was to provide the board with a full detailed list of all regulatory requirements and to act as a prompt for members in relation to the continuous evidence provided during regular meetings.  This report was based on the SFHA toolkit which was evolved to include evidence mapping and a scoring matrix which allowed the board to fully assess compliance against all elements of chapter 3 of the Regulatory Framework and the outcomes of the Scottish Social Housing Charter.
