Performance Committee

SHP is reviewing all our services to ensure we put residents at the centre of everything we do. Our Board members want to make sure that they are hearing your views.

Did you know that SHP also has a Performance Committee?

Our residents and Board members work together to dig deeper into SHP’s performance across the organisation at our quarterly Performance Committe. 

Our last quarterly meeting in July was attended by 9 resident observers from across the Borough who provide the committee with both constructive feedback and a greater insight into the views of our residents.  

Residents can attend to observe a meeting before deciding whether they would like to get more involved with the committee. If you would like to come along please let us know by emailing

Our next Performance Committee meeting will take place on Tuesday 5th November from 10:00am at Sutton Gate 


Could you attend our next Board meeting?

SHP's next Board Meeting will take place on Wednesday 13th November.  This meeting will also include SHP's 2019 Annual General Meeting which starts at 7:00pm. 

Both our Annual General Meeting and Board Meeting are open to the public and we encourage residents to come along and observe. 

If you have any questions and/or would like to attend one of these sessions please let us know in advance by emailing 

The Board's responsibilities are to:

  • guide strategic direction in line with management agreement
  • scrutinise and monitor performance
  • approve budgets
  • agree policies and make financial decisions
  • ensure that SHP is run lawfully and ethically

The board pack will be available here on 6th November 2019
