Bridge is governed to grow sustainably

A voluntary Board of ten independent, non-executive directors governs Bridge. They are responsible for our business strategy and for assessing and managing risks. Our directors have diverse skills in key areas set out in the constitution. 

Directors must act in the best interest of Bridge and its purposes. They are bound by voluntary governance principles and a board charter, as well as by the constitution.


The board has three regular committees which function in accordance with their charters:  


Our Constitution guides the conduct of the Board of Directors and governance of the organisation.  Changes to the Bridge Housing Limited Constitution were passed at the 2023 AGM. The Constitution can be viewed here.  

All Bridge tenants are invited to become members. Members can vote on changes to our constitution and to elect directors at the AGM.
