Further Freedom of Information (FOI) guidance and upcoming programme

  In early August, we shared with members our Open All Hours publication, that provided a template guide to information to aid with meeting the publication requirement under FOI.   We are pleased to announce that we have formed a partnership with TC Young to provide further guidance and services in relation to FOI and data protection.  

Update to Open All Hours available now

In 2016, SFHA and GWSF jointly commissioned Open All Hours – A Model Publication Framework for Housing Associations and Co-operatives.   The guidance was developed to provide guidance and recommendations about the range of information that should be readily available to tenants, customers and members of the public – especially through publication on websites. An update to this guidance, reflecting the publication requirements under Freedom of Information legislation is now available to all SFHA and GWSF members.
