Old Oak Housing is run by a board of management consisting of ten volunteers.
Four of our board members are residents. The resident Board members are selected from a pool of people who were carefully selected by existing Board members.
Another four members are appointed by the Royal Borough of Hammersmith & Fulham and are usually Councillors, and four are nominated by our parent company, Peabody.
The Board normally meets four times annually and holds an annual general meeting in September each year.
It is the Board’s responsibility to:
- Agree Old Oak Housing values and objectives, and ensure that these are achieved
- Set the budget and approve the accounts each year
- Agree how Old Oak Housing should be run and how it should plan for the future
The board also monitors expenditure and makes sure that Old Oak Housing meets its legal and financial obligations.
Board members are not paid, but their expenses (such as babysitting costs) are refunded and they are encouraged to attend relevant courses and conferences. The skills that board members acquire can be useful in other settings and have often helped people to progress in their careers.
The Old Oak Housing Director reports to the Chair of the Board, who is elected by other board members.
Board meetings are open to all Old Oak Housing residents and the dates of meetings are publicised at our office and on our website.
If you think you may be interested in becoming a tenant Board Member, please check our newsletter and website for any available opportunities. A panel of Board members will interview those interested and will select the person who demonstrates the best skills and competencies to fill the role.
