Sector scorecard performance

Housing associations play a vital role in providing the homes we need and it’s important to make sure we all use our resources in the best possible way. The sector scorecard provides a set of measures used by housing providers which helps compare how we are all performing. 

Here’s the latest results from the sector scorecard which show how we stack up against our peer group.  The charts below show our result compared to the quartile 1, median and quartile 3 positions for our peer group – if the results were ranked from highest to lowest, the median would be the mid-point of the group, and the quartile positions are in-between the median and either the highest or lowest performer.

If you want to know more about our performance you might also want to take a look at our Annual Report and five year performance.
