How we are regulated


Grand Union is a housing association, also known as a registered provider (RP). All RPs are regulated by the Regulator for Social Housing. All RPs have to comply with the Regulator’s Regulatory Framework, which details how we are expected to run the business. The framework covers seven standards:

  • Governance and Financial Viability
  • Value for Money
  • Rent
  • Tenant Involvement and Empowerment
  • Home
  • Tenancy
  • Neighbourhood and Community

In April 2021, we adopted The National Housing Federation’s (NHF) Code of Governance 2020, which sets out the rules by which the Board runs the business. We review our compliance with the framework annually and report to our Board to assure them that we are well run.

The last report to Board was May 2022, which confirmed our compliance with the 2020 Code of Governance.

We have an Assets and Liabilities Register in line with requirements and, in March 2016, the Board agreed to adopt the NHF Mergers, Group Structures and Partnerships Voluntary Code for Housing Associations to guide its approach to future opportunities.
