Affordable housing provider Keelman Homes is teaming up with local housing association Karbon Homes in a move that will see the management of all their current and future tenancies transfer from current partner Gateshead Council.

Anne Marie Pearce, Managing Director of Keelman Homes, said: “Our priority is to make sure our tenants receive value for money and the best possible service to help them feel safe, comfortable, and supported in their homes.

“We have enjoyed a very successful relationship with Gateshead Council over many years, and together we have built over 180 new homes for affordable rent, rent-to-buy and shared ownership, as well as completing over 120 refurbishments.

“Some time ago, we began exploring the possibility of appointing an alternative housing management partner and, following an options appraisal, Keelman Homes are delighted to announce the appointment of Karbon Homes as our new strategic partner.

“They have a strong reputation for delivering excellent customer service to other housing providers through their partnership arm, Karbon Solutions, and I’m confident Keelman Homes’ tenants will really enjoy the service they receive.”

The agreement with Karbon Homes will begin in the summer of 2023, and will include all tenancy management services and repairs.

Christine Paxton, Assistant Director of Business Development and Communities at Karbon Homes, said: “We are thrilled to be working alongside Keelman Homes to provide key services for their tenants in Gateshead.

“Keelman’s core values of making a positive difference in their communities aligns with our own and makes our partnership a great fit. Together we can provide their customers with high quality, value for money services that prioritise supporting them and keeping them as safe and secure in their homes as possible. We know this will be a fantastic partnership.”
