Civitas Social Housing PLC

(‘Civitas’)

Response to Regulator’s Sustainability Report 

Civitas, the leading social housing REIT, notes the report issued today by the Regulator of Social Housing, ‘Lease-based providers of specialised supported housing’.

This report is an addendum to the Regulator’s ‘Sector Risk profile’ report published in October 2018 and contains no new information or opinion of material relevance to Civitas and its leases.

Civitas continues to be fully supportive of, and in regular and positive dialogue with, the Regulator and welcomes the Regulator’s acknowledgement of the importance of the growing supported social housing sector. Civitas also continues to work closely with all the Housing Associations with whom it has lease agreements to assist them in improving and maintaining operational performance and is implementing a number of initiatives to this end.

The priority remains, as always, the stable provision of high quality and specialist housing which enables vulnerable adults to live as independently as possible within their communities.

The Board’s performance expectations remain unchanged.
