A multimillion-pound cash injection means believe housing, a multi-award-winning housing association, will build 1,250 new homes, upgrade thousands more and extend the support it offers to communities.

The not-for-profit housing association based in Co Durham will use the cash to transform homes and communities. It will double its home-building programme and spend more than £6 million extra on improving the energy efficiency of existing homes.

Extra money will also be pumped into believe housing's successful community investment programme, which provided more than £150,000 to charities and groups in the past year. Chief executive of believe housing, Bill Fullen said: “This is one of the largest investments in housing that the region has seen. Demand for truly affordable housing has probably never been higher and this investment will help us to go further than ever before to meet that demand.

“Being an award-winning housing association is about helping people into work, providing high-quality advice and supporting the voluntary groups that make a difference in our communities.”

Believe housing is one of the North East's largest housing associations and it prides itself on putting its tenants and its people at the heart of everything it does. It applauds diversity and encourages learning at every opportunity. Its mission is to strive every day to improve on what it did the day before, because being better never stops at believe housing. Agility in its thought processes and how it works is the believe way.
