The Guarantee for Housing Association Residents has been developed by the Welsh Assembly Government in consultation with the Welsh Federation of Housing Associations and the Welsh Tenants Federation.

Its purpose is to advise you about:

  • What your landlord must do to comply with the Regulatory Code
  • Any additional standards that are considered to be good practice which your landlord should normally comply with.

The Guarantee is important. You can use the Guarantee to find out what you can expect and to check that you are getting the service that you should be getting from your housing association. It also tells you what to do if you think your housing association is not honouring the Guarantee.

The Pay Transparency Report commissioned by CHC represents 36 Welsh Housing Associations, and provides a transparent and open overview of senior pay rates in the social housing sector.

The Report follows a recommendation from the Public Accounts Committee to generate greater transparency and openness in the sector.

The housing sector in Wales provides great value for money; for every £1 of public funding received, Housing Associations generate £5.69 for the Welsh economy.  In 2018/2019, HAs invested over £1bn in communities across Wales, with 89p in every £1 remaining in Wales.

The Report shows that 11% of the sector is led by a Chief Executive from a BAME background, which compares with 2% in the wider UK housing sector. (Inside Housing, 2018)

There is an even number of male and female CEOs in Welsh Housing Associations, compared with the UK average of 72.8% male to 27.2% female (ONS article “Understanding the gender pay gap in the UK” published 17th January 2018)
