Your Representatives and How They Work
Who we are
Most Representatives - 23 out of 28 - are directly elected by the members.
If you are an RBH tenant or employee, but you aren't a member please join us.
The Representative Body represents RBH members and wider interests of the community in the governance of the Society’s affairs by deciding service related strategy and policy in RBH. It particularly develops a membership strategy through which it ensures the effectiveness of RBH’s partnership working between tenant and employee members throughout RBH. RBH’s members own the society. Becoming a member means that tenant and employee members can work together to make RBH as effective as it can be at delivering high quality services and meeting the needs and aspirations of its tenants, employees, communities and other stakeholders.
