bpha, Futures Housing Group and Flagship Group, are in early talks regarding a potential partnership that will span central and east of England. The organisations plan to combine their expertise and reach, to improve significantly the housing experience and opportunities for local people.

In a joint statement, Chairs Paul Leinster (bpha), Mike Stevenson (Futures) and Peter Hawes (Flagship), said:

‘This is an exciting, unique opportunity that will bring together the expertise, capacity and ambition of our three organisations to make a difference for more people, faster. Our shared ethos is that customers will be at the centre of a new partnership with services influenced by local need and customer knowledge. We share a resolute commitment to be part of strong, regional infrastructure with our partners, to improve opportunities for local people and tackle the many aspects of the housing crisis in central and east England.

‘In these early stages of talks it is clear we have much in common, including geographic synergy, shared priorities, a firm financial footing and a commitment to the importance of local delivery.’

The organisations will continue to share updates as exploratory talks continue.
