Role of the board
Derwent Living is governed by a board of management. The board today comprises members with relevant knowledge and skills, all of whom have an interest in housing and in particular the provision of housing for those in need.
Derwent Living conducts its business through its board which is legally responsible for the affairs of the company.
The board meets quarterly to approve matters of policy and take key decisions regarding our activities and finances. In addition, Derwent Living has a committee structure as follows:
Operational Performance Committee – Meets quarterly to consider and approve all key matters relating to purchase of sites, letting of building contracts and the management and maintenance of affordable housing.
Resources Audit and Risk Committee – Meets quarterly to review financial performance; approve funding arrangements and consider key staffing and technology issues. The group also considers the organisation’s approach to risk, current key risks and discusses the risk map.
Governance and Remuneration Committee – Meets twice a year to review the performance, conditions of service and salaries of the chief executive and directors.
