BME National Summary
Nehemiah UCHA wins competitive bid process to take over Central & Cecil Housing Association properties in West Midlands
The properties are located across Birmingham and Coventry and C&C, which owns and manages over 2,450 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.
Adrian Eggington Central & Cecil executive director – resident services, said: “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.”
