The regulation of social housing is the responsibility of the Regulation Committee, a statutory committee of the Homes and Communities Agency (HCA). The organisation refers to itself as the Regulator of Social Housing in undertaking the functions of the Regulation Committee.

References in any enactment or instrument to the Regulator of Social Housing are references to the HCA acting through the Regulation Committee.

Homes England is the trading name of the HCA’s non-regulation functions.


The co-regulatory principles underpin the regulation provided by the HCA.  Registered providers are therefore required to meet relevant standards. You can learn more about the regulatory standards here.

The Board that governs Derwent Living’s services is responsible for meeting the standards and being transparent and accountable for the delivery of social housing objectives.

It is for providers to support residents both to shape and scrutinise service delivery and to hold the Board to account. To achieve this, Derwent Living has a scrutiny team and a programme of co-regulation in place. You can learn more about the scrutiny team and the work they do here.
