What does Get on Board involve?
Being responsible for nearly two million homes and housing five million people means housing associations are always on the lookout for skilled volunteers to help provide dynamic governance for their organisations. The time commitment asked of board members varies, but will be the equivalent of one day a month, mainly to attend meetings. Very few housing associations pay board members, apart from their out-of-pocket expenses, such as travelling and childcare costs.
