The Sector Scorecard is the name for a set of 15 indicators that we are proposing to use to benchmark efficiency across the sector. The aim is for these indicators to become the mainstream way that efficiency and effectiveness are measured.
These indicators will allow us to compare like with like, while at the same time recognising that ours is a diverse sector encompassing a wide range of legitimate social missions.
We are now launching a one-year pilot to thoroughly test the indicators proposed and the practicalities of collecting and analysing the data. We want as many associations as possible to take part in the pilot so please sign up using the form.
This initiative has received widespread backing across the sector including from the Housing Minister, Gavin Barwell who said:
“I welcome this initiative to develop a set of common efficiency metrics for the housing association sector. The sector has a vital role to play in providing the homes we need, and housing associations need to be able to demonstrate that they are making the best possible use of their resources to deliver for the communities they serve.”
The Sector Scorecard has been developed by the Efficiencies Working Group:
PlaceShapers (North Star Housing Group, Shepherds Bush Housing Group), Pickering and Ferens Homes, Affinity Sutton (now Clarion), Moat, Thames Valley Housing, Riverside, Innisfree, Paradigm, DCH, Derwent Living, L&Q, Westward Housing, Flagship Homes, Home Group.
