Housing Pathways is governed by a voluntary Board of Trustees who contribute a wide range of skills and experience to the work of the Charity. The role of Trustees is to agree the strategic direction of the business and to ensure that the aims and objectives of the business are met. Housing Pathways aspires to excellence in governance and operates to the guidelines set out in the 2020 National Housing Federation code of governance.
Trustees typically meets 4-6 times a year. Four of these meetings are formal Board meetings where the Board will receive detailed oversight of the Charity’s operations covering financial performance, service delivery and regulatory compliance. Supporting the work of the Board are the Audit and Risk Committee and Grants Committee.
