Our Team

Talk to us

Our Team

Aelwyd Housing has a team based at our head office in Morganstown, Cardiff. We also have two scheme co-ordinators who work on site at two of our schemes and several scheme cleaners. 

Board Members

Our Board adheres to the ‘Code of Good Governance’ for Housing Associations, produced by Community Housing Cymru. The latest Code was published in June 2021. The Board meets throughout the year to provide scrutiny, manage risk, monitor our performance, and to make strategic decisions. We also have an Audit Committee which provides oversight of our Internal and External Audit function.

Aelwyd Housing is a small team where all members of staff support each other,
but we also have small departments within the team. We thought it would be
helpful for residents to have an understanding of who we are and what we do.
