Board pay

Your Board is a group of highly skilled and experienced people from housing and other professional backgrounds who have the job of making sure Ongo Homes is well run and financially secure.

They also ensure Ongo Homes meets the requirements of the Government’s Homes and Communities Agency (HCA).

Chair of the Board is Matthew Spittles, who has worked in housing for more than 25 years.

He said: “Our role is to provide assurances, not just to the HCA, but just as importantly to all our tenants, that Ongo Homes is a strong and safe company which follows the high standards it is set, and consistently delivers value for money and excellent housing and community services.”

In common with many other professional organisations, and most housing associations, we would like to pay our Board members.

They have a high level of responsibility; not only in governing a financially strong company, but in the personal liability they hold. Their job is getting more complex as they work hard to meet new Government expectations.

We have carried out a lot of research and know that £4,000 a year is, on average, the amount paid by others. We would like to offer the same to our Board members and welcome your views.

By paying our Board we can guarantee we attract, and retain, the most skilled and qualified people to safeguard the future of Ongo Homes and lead its continual improvement.
