West Midlands Housing Association, Nehemiah UCHA has recently won a competitive bid process to take over the running of approx. 80 properties including 2 retirement schemes from London based Central & Cecil (C&C) Housing Association located across Birmingham and Coventry.
C&C, which owns and manages over 2450 properties in London and the South East, took the decision to look for a new owner that was geographically better placed to provide a more locally-based service for residents in the West Midlands.
Adrian Eggington Central & Cecil Executive Director - Resident Services, commented: “The decision to transfer our West Midlands stock to Nehemiah UCHA was made as C&C wanted to focus on its core business of providing homes and services for older people in London and the South East. C&C were looking for a local provider for the transfer who could deliver excellent local services to the residents and who shared our values of partnership, integrity and respect. Nehemiah UCHA was selected as that provider and this decision was proved to be the correct one as demonstrated by their dedication to the wishes of residents through the transfer process.”
Llewellyn Graham Chief Executive of Nehemiah UCHA added “We are delighted to have been chosen by C&C to manage their homes and to have won the competitive bid process. As a community-based housing provider we are looking forward to working with local residents to ensure we deliver the homes and services that they want.”
“Nehemiah UCHA though is about much more than providing high quality housing. We are committed to supporting all of our residents in maintaining their homes but we are also are committed to improving the neighbourhoods in which people live.”
All affected C&C customers have been notified about the decision and have had the opportunity to find out more about Nehemiah UCHA and their services.
