Soha Housing is a mutual. Shareholding membership is open to tenants, shared owners and leaseholders. There is no financial return to members, but there is a social return. Members make the most important decisions at Soha, including changes to our Rules, Board membership and how we invest in resident and community involvement. Members also hold the Board to account and monitor our performance.
We’re managed through a system of co-regulation. This means that the Board is legally responsible for the effective running of the organisation and makes the strategic and financial decisions. They delegate the day-to-day management to Soha's staff. The Board members (whether community or resident) are nominated by a panel including resident and Board members. They are then appointed through a vote of Members at Soha's AGM.
We actively encourage and support our residents to get involved, share their opinions and tell us what’s working and what needs changing. If you’re a resident and would like to have a say about how we’re run and what priorities we set contact us to find out more about how you can get involved.
