Gwalia’s Executive Team accepts the Regulatory Assessment Report  issued as at July 2015 and are pleased that the report recognises the progress made in the last year.

Over the past year, a comprehensive review of our governance arrangements has resulted in enhanced  governance arrangements and the adoption of  Community Housing Cymru’s Code of Governance. Recognising the importance of tenant and service user engagement, we have worked extensively with service users and staff to improve the engagement of stakeholders involvement in scrutiny and governance and whilst these arrangements are in the early stages of implementation, initial feedback is positive.

We have undertaken a major organisational redesign and introduced a new staffing structure over the last year. Teams, including those at executive and senior management level, have been reconfigured and regulatory experience demonstrates that this new arrangement is bedding in.

Although the last year has been challenging, we welcome the support of the regulatory team and the opportunity to work in the true spirit of co-regulation by developing a plan for future regulator engagement.
