Regenda signs up to the Board Charter

HACT is delighted to announce that Sovereign Housing Association has signed up to be one of the five core funders of the Centre for Excellence in Community Investment.

Steph Harrison, Executive Director Operations and Customer Service, Regenda Group said:

“Regenda’s core purpose is to regenerate places, working with people to create the opportunities they need to thrive. We’re delighted to have committed to the Board Charter for Community Investment and will continue to work within communities to make a positive impact on people’s lives.” 

Andrew van Doorn, Chief Executive, HACT, said:

“We congratulate Regenda Group on signing up to the Board Charter and demonstrating their commitment to community investment. Social housing organisations are continuing to drive forward the community investment agenda, recognising that there is now a significant opportunity for us to speak more collectively, effectively and publicly, formalising our long-term commitment and ensuring our social purpose is embedded across our businesses.”

We are inviting all Boards to sign up to the Board Charter, which consists of nine pledges. These pledges demonstrate a commitment of each organisation not only to invest in their communities but to do so in a strategic and impactful way. We have produced a video that can be played at Board meetings, explaining how organisations can sign up for the Board Charter, as well as the reflections from a signatory about how easy the certification process was. 

The Charter has been developed by the Centre for Excellence in Community Investment, in collaboration with representatives from across the UK community investment sector.

“The role of providers of social housing in tackling both the housing crisis and the poverty crisis is more important than ever. Now, more than ever, they are playing a critical role as anchor institutions within communities,” Andrew van Doorn continued.
