Karbon Homes is one of the largest housing associations in the North East. We own and manage over 24,000 homes across the region, from Berwick to North Yorkshire and across to the Cumbrian border in the west.
We are a not-for-profit housing association, so every penny we generate through commercial activities is re-invested to support our core purpose. We work hard to balance a strong business head with a strong social heart, to ensure we are a successful, sustainable business and a values-driven organisation.
We provide strong foundations through providing affordable homes, supporting our communities and making a lasting difference in our neighbourhoods. We are one of the largest housing associations in the North, owning and managing nearly 24,000 homes regionwide and employing almost 800 people.
These are times when our sector is being challenged to think about its core purpose, how we contribute to the economy and how we support the people who make the economy work. As a successful housing provider, we are ideally placed to do more to support and enable our customers and local communities to succeed in life.
Over the next five years we will be investing over £233 million in building new homes. From affordable rented housing, to support for those looking to get on the home ownership ladder. From homes for older people who want to live independently, to Extra Care schemes that can provide round-the-clock support for those who are more vulnerable.
We are also taking a focused look at how we invest in communities. We know that to make a lasting impact in neighbourhoods we have to forge successful partnerships – considering investment for education, training and employment, as well as health and wellbeing.
Importantly, but perhaps elusively, we also have to help people feel that they belong and are engaged with what is happening where they live. This is an agenda focused on providing an integrated housing and community offer, to help people raise and realise their aspirations.
Our values define what is important to us, helping us be consistent in the way we do things and guiding the decisions we take.
We believe in people, and create the conditions for them to succeed and unlock their own potential.
We continually learn, improve and innovate so we are able to respond to change and be the best we can be
We go forward with confidence and are passionate, proactive and influential in building a better future
We use our knowledge and experience to be effective and efficient, and make sound well-informed business decisions with integrity
We work hard to understand the needs and aspirations of others and are mindful of our impact on people, communities and the environment
