Three housing providers given top marks by Regulator

Three housing associations have retained their G1/V1 ratings in the latest round of judgements from the Regulator of Social Housing.

Graham Burgess, Chair of Torus Group, who one were of the organisations who received the good grades, said: “The Board and I are extremely pleased to have retained G1/V1 status from the Regulator of Social Housing.

“It has been less than two years since new Torus came together and this recognition of the Group’s high performance is the direct result of the hard work, commitment and effort that the workforce and leadership team have put in to ensure that the Group – and the vital work it does across the North West – is a success.”

Torus Group Chief Executive, Steve Coffey, added: “Particularly during the current pandemic, providers of essential services, like ourselves, are operating in challenging times. Our Group’s mission is ‘growing stronger communities’ and this has never been more important. Delivering that goal now – and in the longer term – depends on our resilience as an organisation.

“This result validates the Group’s approach to delivering our mission and underlines our steadfast commitment to doing things properly.

"I would like to thank the Board for setting a clear direction and providing valuable oversight. Indeed, this outcome is a reflection of the entire Torus team, who have worked tirelessly to deliver for our tenants and communities.”

Mosscare St Vincents were another organisation that received the grades, with CEO Charlie Norman taking to social media to say it was "a credit to the team".
