The Board of LHP is governed by up to twelve members (including co-optees) and the current membership is shown under 4.0 Our Board. Membership is made up entirely of independent members, all chosen for individual skills and experience. There are no nomination rights held by any third party to appoint to Board, so it is truly an autonomous body.
Board Members serve a maximum term of nine years overall, though appointments are made on the basis of a three-year term, which is reviewed by the Board before being renewed to maintain the appropriate mix of skills needed.
There is the option to appoint additional (non-voting) co-opted members to the Board, chosen for experience and knowledge in specific areas of business, whenever the Board identifies a need for additional skills to deal with a new project or challenge.
All members are paid a remuneration fee depending on what position they take on the Board or Committees. The fee is set at an appropriate level, on the basis of recommendations, in the form of a report from an independent specialist who has knowledge of the sector. This is externally benchmarked every three years.
Board Members have clear and ambitious aspirations to build an organisation fit for the future, capable of always delivering the highest quality services to our customers, with the mechanisms in place to make sure the people who live in our homes and use our services are meaningfully engaged in decision making.
The members make decisions on how the company is run. All major strategic and policy decisions on the future direction of the organisation are approved by the Board.
