Greenfields Community Housing has been upgraded to a G1 governance rating by the Regulator of Social Housing.

The regulator found significant progress had been made to strengthen leadership, governance and culture at Greenfields, which was downgraded to G2 in May 2018.

The regulator confirmed Greenfields’ financial strength by awarding an unchanged V1 rating for financial viability. Both G1 and V1 are the highest ratings awarded by the regulator.

Emma Palmer, Chief Executive of Greenfields Community Housing, said: “This very welcome decision recognises the huge amount of work carried out by Greenfields’ staff, Board and volunteer residents over the last two years.

“We are now in an even stronger position to work alongside our residents, communities and partners to provide superb homes and services in brilliant communities to those who need them.”

Dale Butcher, Chair of Greenfields Community Housing, said: “I would like to thank everyone involved for their hard work in securing this G1 rating from the regulator.

“Working alongside new partners, Greenfields remains well placed to play a leading role in fixing the housing crisis in the East.”
