How we are regulated

How we are regulated

Cartrefi Conwy is a Registered Social Landlord (RSL), which means we are regulated by the Housing Directorate of the Welsh Government.

The Welsh Government has published guidelines which set out the outcomes that housing associations are expected to deliver relating to housing, governance and financial management.

Part of the regulatory process requires Cartrefi Conwy to self-assess its activities in order to demonstrate how it is meeting the relevant guidelines. This self-assessment is then shared with the Welsh Government’s Housing Regulation team, following which a report is published by the Welsh Government.

The Board of Cartrefi Conwy has recorded its commitment to meet the guidelines set out by the Welsh Government:

  • to oversee, inform and influence the self-assessment process;
  • to generate board-level challenge to findings;
  • to take ownership of the results and the improvement priorities identified.

Cartrefi Conwy’s last full Housing Association Regulatory Opinion and Financial Viability Judgment report was published on the 27th of November 2019.

In 2020/21 the regulation team have been carrying out interim regulatory judgements for all housing associations in Wales, pending finalisation of a revised Regulatory Framework.
