Celebrating membership

Peter Nkum about to make his point into a microphone at the Soha membership celebration in April 2018

Soha Housing has become a mutual. At the end of April it celebrated with around 80 of the first members to join.

Soha is one of only a handful of housing associations across the country to open up shareholding to tenants. This gives tenants the legal right to vote in the most important company decisions.

Peter Nkum (pictured) who has applied for membership of Soha, says, “I want to join so that I can have a say in decisions that make a difference to my home and my neighbourhood. I’m really proud to be involved with Soha and I’d like to see many more people doing the same.”

Richard Peacock, Chief Executive of Soha says, “Twenty years ago, Soha was founded following a vote by tenants. Now tenants can join as members and have the right to vote in big questions about how Soha works in the community, and about the future of the company. By opening up membership to tenants, we are giving real power to the people Soha is here to serve.”

The launch event included discussions about how Soha should work with local communities, as well as how tenants can have a say in their housing services.
