CIH unveils vision for the future
The Chartered Institute of Housing has promised to put customers first and encourage sector involvement over the next three years in its new corporate plan.
The document, which is published today, sets out the organisation’s business priorities and its intention to become the ‘home of professional standards’ for the housing sector.
Grainia Long, chief executive of CIH, said the organisation’s impact will be best felt through delivery.
‘There is a lot to be fixed in housing,’ she said. ‘The current crisis is being fuelled by continuing economic uncertainty, a contracting public sector as well as job losses in the private and public professions – all of these factors mean that there has never been a more important time for housing professionals to be brilliant.
‘Our plan places members and customers at the heart of everything we do; it strengthens our investment in the quality and impact of our knowledge - in the interests of professionals; and it will ensure an unprecedented focus on supporting and challenging professionals to continue to improve standards across the sector.’
The plan follows the appointment of the CIH’s new governing board in October and Ms Long’s appointment last month.
