We are pleased to announce that The Regulator of Social Housing (RSH) has awarded Durham Aged Mineworkers’ Homes Association the highest possible rating for the way it is governed.
To achieve the rating, also known as G1, we were assessed against the Governance standard by the RSH. We already held a V1 rating for financial viability.
DAMHA Chief Executive Paul Mullis said: “Our previous governance rating of G2 was compliant with the RSH standards but we have been working closely with the regulator to return to the highest level of G1.
“We are therefore delighted to have been able to make the necessary changes which has returned us to this status.
“This latest Regulatory Judgement is testament to the hard work, dedication and flexibility of the DAMHA Board and colleagues at DAMHA who are committed to putting our residents at the heart of everything we do.
“Due to Covid-19, the last 12 months have been amongst the most challenging in our 123-year history, but we have managed to maintain our services with little or no disruption to residents and continued to build new affordable homes, with the keys to 56 two-bedroom bungalows being handed over at three different locations at a cost of £7.3 million.
“We continue to look to the future as we maintain and continuously improve to face future challenges and opportunities.”
