My first year as SHAL’s Chair has been an eventful one to say the least. The summer budget in 2015 created a tidal wave of change to which we have responded robustly. The impacts from the Chancellor’s announcements were modelled within our business plan and the board is continuing to actively track possible volatility arising from the EU Referendum, the impact of construction at Hinkley Point, a new Prime Minister and Cabinet and the continuing and increasing impact of welfare reform. During the year, the Board made time to consider carefully the uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity of the current operating environment and to review SHAL’s governance structures. We remain committed to our vision, purpose and values and are putting in place new governance arrangements in 2016 to ensure that we meet challenges and opportunities with agility and flexibility.
