Wythenshawe Community Housing Group
Board Governance

A board of voluntary non-executive Directors direct strategy, make policies and take financial decisions. The Board sets the wider aims and objectives, and monitors performance against these whilst ensuring that our staff meet high standards of service.

From April 2016, the Group moved towards a Common Board governance structure. This means that the 12 members will meet together at the same time to consider matters for Parkway Green (PGHT), Willow Park (WPHT) and Wythenshawe Community Housing Group. The members each have a designation as demonstrated below, its believed this approach will be more efficient and enable matters to be considered at the same time.
