How we are managed

How we are managed

The work of Irwell Valley is overseen by our Board of Management. Three of our current Board Members are also residents of the Association.

Day-to-day management of the organisation is delivered by our Directors

Board Members set out and agree our corporate objectives and values, make policy and strategic decisions and monitor performance to ensure that our objectives are met. They also support and advise the Management Team.

Four groups support the Board; Governance and Remuneration Committee, Audit Committee, Operations Committee and the Residents' Scrutiny Panel.

Irwell Valley is regulated by the Homes and Communities Agency (HCA). The main role of the HCA is to set out the regulatory framework within we must operate. This includes setting out standards that we are expected to follow in relation to governance, value for money (vfm) and financial viability. These standards are set out in the Regulatory Framework.

You can see how we are meeting the various standards by viewing our Annual Report to Customers.

We produce an Annual Self Assessment, which identifies how we are performing against the HCA Regulatory Framework. This is available for customers to scrutinise at any time.

We also publish our Annual Accounts every year.
