The Chartered Institute of Housing is the independent voice for housing and the home of professional standards

Recently we have welcomed Citizen Housing (formerly WM Housing), Waverley Borough Council, Clarion Housing Group, Sovereign Housing Association and LiveWest as CIH partners.

By becoming a CIH partner, your organisation will be joining forces with us to shape the future leaders of the housing sector. By investing in the continuing professional development of your staff, we can provide a better service for tenants, residents and communities in an increasingly complex environment.

Matt Posaner, director of people at Citizen Housing (formerly WM Housing), said:

“We’re delighted to become a partner of the Chartered Institute of Housing. Making sure that our people have the skills, knowledge and expertise they need to be able to provide the best services to our customers is a big priority for us. Our partnership with the professional body will allow us to do this and we look forward to working closely with CIH.”

Sam Massingham, head of learning & development, Clarion Housing Group, said:

“Being a great place to work” is one of Clarion’s strategic objectives. We’re delighted to become a Platinum partner with CIH, as part of our commitment to providing access to a range of development tools and resources to help our people perform at their best and realise their potential. With 24 staff members about to commence their Housing Apprenticeships and other work underway to determine a raft of professional standards to meet our future needs, now is a good time for Clarion Housing and CIH to join forces.”

Tracy Allison, deputy chief executive at Hyde Group, commented:

“We look forward to working together with the CIH and are thrilled to become a Platinum Partner. By utilising their wealth of experience, knowledge and the training available we can help equip our staff with the professional skills needed to respond to future challenges. Our investment will not only benefit Hyde as an organisation but importantly, our residents, for years to come.”

Mark Lake, head of organisational development, LiveWest (formerly Liverty) remarked:

“CIH qualifications provide our people with a great foundation for their careers in housing and enable them to provide even better services to our customers. Becoming a Platinum partner means that we can work more closely with CIH to continue professionalising our services, recognising the skills that we already have and building our capability for the future. We look forward to collaborating with CIH as we go forwards and using our partnership to develop more innovative approaches to developing our teams.”
