S&P Global reviewed our credit rating in October 2020 issuing us with an A+ stable rating.

The Regulator of Social Housing has published its annual consumer regulation review. One of its key messages was that complying with health and safety obligations remains the most fundamental responsibility for governing bodies of registered providers (housing associations). Also that it is essential that registered providers can show that they are meeting their health and safety obligations, and that tenants are not at risk in their homes.
We comply with all statutory responsibilities for fire safety, gas safety, lift safety, legionella, asbestos and electrical safety, whether stock is owned, managed or leased. We do not own or manage any properties that are more than 18m high and have no properties that are clad with aluminium composite material type panels.
