The move aims to address the weaknesses in registered provider’s governance and operational arrangements.

The Regulator of Social Housing (the regulator) has made three statutory appointments to the Board of Prospect Housing Limited.

The not-for-profit, lease-based provider of supported housing operates in Birmingham and the West Midlands. It provides supported accommodation to adults at risk of homelessness, often people with complex needs, including a history of offending, substance misuse, and mental health. In its 2019 Statistical Data Return, Prospect Housing was reported as having 1,860 supported housing units.

The new appointments are:

  • Chan Kataria, Group Chief Executive at emh group
  • John Ghader, Chief Executive at Prima Group
  • Paul Dolan, Chief Executive, Accent Group

Harold Brown, Senior Assistant Director and head of the regulator’s Investigation and Enforcement team, said:

“Following the publication of the regulatory judgement on Prospect Housing in May 2020 we have been working with the provider to ensure it takes action to address the weaknesses in its governance and operational arrangements. We have made these three appointments following our most recent engagement to ensure that the existing Board has additional capacity and access to the expertise and skills needed to resolve the failures.”

“Our priority in taking this regulatory action is to ensure that the interests of Prospect Housing’s tenants remain protected. We will publish an updated regulatory judgement in due course.”

The current regulatory judgement is available on the regulator’s website.
