A new report published by the Scottish Housing Regulator (SHR) has highlighted how an RSL successfully took action to address risks to strengthen its governance.

The case study shows how an RSL, referred to as RSL X, recognised serious weaknesses in its governance and how it worked with SHR to take action to strengthen its governance and secure its future.

The regulator’s report is the latest in its Governance Matters series, which highlights the importance of good governance, shares real-life experience, positive practice and lessons learned.

Christine Macleod, director of governance and performance, said: “RSLs are generally well-governed and working in a stable sector with many strengths. The difficulties that led to this case study are very much the exception. This case study shows how although the governing body initially failed to recognise and tackle its governance weaknesses, it came to understand the risks, took action to sort its problems and emerged a stronger organisation.

“We aim these reports primarily at RSL governing body members who have told us that they find these case studies to be helpful and use them to review what’s happening in their own organisations.”
