The Regulator for Social Housing confirmed today that Golding Homes governance rating has been upgraded from G2 to G1.
Chief Executive, Stephanie Goad said: “We’ve used the difficult situation we encountered two years ago as a catalyst to deliver change at pace. We’re pleased that after a rigorous assessment the Regulator has returned Golding Homes to G1, the top rating for governance. This is a result of the hard work by everyone at Golding over the last two years and a determination to make certain that customer safety always remains our top priority.
Golding will continue to focus on improving services for customers and engaging with them to learn how we can work towards delivering our vision of outstanding services, great homes and proud communities.”
The regulator now has assurance that Golding Homes has strengthened its compliance and risk frameworks, including its controls and reporting systems. The regulator also has assurance that Golding Homes has improved the integrity of its property data and enhanced board oversight of health and safety compliance.
Golding Homes Chair Chris Cheeseman commented: “We never want to go back to where we found ourselves two years ago - but we’ve embraced this challenge as an opportunity to deliver change at pace. We’re not complacent, but confident that we have strong foundations in place to build and successfully deliver our future ambitions for Golding Homes and its customers.”
Golding Homes financial viability grading remains strong with the top rating of V1.
