Member Benefits

Why is Membership Important Now?

This is an important time for councils with ALMOs. Joining forces to share information, develop good practice and provide effective representation are increasingly important for the sector.

 

CWAG has established itself as a respected voice representing councils with ALMOs and is well placed to continue to develop this role, building on its established reputation and track record.

 

CWAG members are spread geographically across the country and include Metropolitan Boroughs Unitary Authorities, London Boroughs and District Councils. Many members have now completed stock options reviews and are looking to develop new arrangements with their ALMOs, tailored to local circumstances and priorities. CWAG provides an effective way for authorities to network and share good practice.

 

All housing providers face challenging times in terms of the impact of welfare reform changes and maximising the benefits of self-financing. As a Special Interest Group focussed on the issues facing councils with ALMOs, CWAG will represent members interests as well as keeping them up to date with emerging issues and developments within the sector.

 

How to Join

 Membership is open to all councils with ALMOs. The joining fee and annual subscription are calculated on the basis of the size of an Authority’s stock holding.
