VALUE FOR MONEY STATEMENT

Value for Money for Wellhouse Housing Association means that:

  • We are delivering our vision & values and objectives in our business and operational plans;
  • We have a majority of very satisfied customers in a range of delivery areas;
  • We are financially sustainable;
  • Our costs compare well with other housing organisations;
  • We are meeting our Key Performance Indicators;
  • We are becoming more efficient, which means having the same outcomes for reduced resources applied or better outcomes for the same resources applied

In order to demonstrate value for money we must have metrics which can show that we are achieving the above.  The goals of our strategy are to reduce our operating costs per unit on a year on year basis, improve our performance on costs compared to other associations operating in greater Easterhouse and to ensure that we are making the best possible use of our assets to meet our objectives.

In 2018, we will be:

  • making use of the value for money matrix available through Scotland’s Housing Network;
  • carrying out peer comparisons;
  • exploring better use of SDM and the purchase of Real Asset Management Software;
  • embarking on at least one shared service project with EHRA which demonstrate value for money.
