Our Governance and Board
We have a team of dedicated Board members who oversee all key decisions and review performance throughout the year.
As well as our main Board, we have an Audit and Risk Committee, a Governance, Nominations and Remunerations Committee and a Development Panel.
The Board meets about six times a year and most members also sit on one of the specialist committees. All our Board members, staff, appointed contractors and consultants are bound by Paradigm’s Code of Conduct and other principal policies.
Detailed information on the Board’s objectives and strategy, governance and financial position are set out in our Annual Report.
Paradigm has adopted the National Housing Federation’s (NHF) Excellence in Governance: Code for Members and Good Practice Guidance 2010 and the NHF’s Code of Conduct 2012.
