Who we are

On this page

We have around 14,000 employees who make up one team. From the top of our organisation to the frontline, we are united in working together for our mission. We include our residents in this, putting them at the heart of our decision-making. 

We have a group structure, in which Sanctuary Housing Association is the parent company of a number of subsidiary operations within its control. 

How we are regulated

We are subject to a range of laws, rules and regulations relevant to our business, which we must take all reasonable steps to comply with.  

Our regulators include: 

  • The Regulator of Social Housing  

  • The Scottish Housing Regulator 

  • The Care Quality Commission 

  • Scottish Care Inspectorate

The Regulator of Social Housing sets Economic and Consumer standards all housing associations are expected to meet.  We have a G1 rating from the Regulator of Social Housing for governance and a V2 rating for our viability, meaning we meet the regulatory expectations with a recognition that there are financial challenges which we will have to manage.

Our governance structure

Our governance structure is made up of: 

Our resident panels work closely with our Group Board, Group Housing Board, and senior team, enabling diverse residents’ views to influence our services. Our Resident Scrutiny Panel challenges our senior management team about our services, while our Resident Advisory Panel helps us develop new policies, strategies, and ways of working. 

The Group Board considers that the Group and its Registered Provider subsidiaries comply with the provisions of the National Housing Federation’s Code of Governance 2020.
