Chairman’s thanks as partnership goes aheadFebruary 3, 2020
Suffolk Housing have partnered with Flagship Group to help further improve the range of services it provides to its residents.
The partnership comes following extensive discussions between the two organisations and consultation with residents. It will help improve efficiency while bringing more opportunities to improve existing homes and build new properties for people in housing need.
The Suffolk Housing name and brand will remain, while residents will continue to receive services from the same staff from the same base at Coppice House in Bury St Edmunds.
Three Suffolk Housing Board members – Carole Taylor-Brown, Matthew Peak and Steve Cook – will also join the Flagship Board.
Carole Taylor-Brown, Chairman of the Suffolk Housing Board, said: “I am really pleased we have achieved a partnership with Flagship. It will strengthen Suffolk Housing and enable us to ensure that there remains a strong focus on Suffolk and the needs of our residents.
“Keeping a local presence and building local engagement was an essential part of our discussions and Flagship have been very positive in supporting us achieve that.
“Suffolk Housing has been through a challenging time in recent years and it is good to reach a point where we can look forward to building on the hard work of the staff and Board over that period. My thanks go to all concerned for their support and commitment to getting the organisation to this point and wish Steve Cook well as the new Chair of the local Board.
“I would also like to acknowledge and thank the organisation’s founders, including former Chief Executive Steve Clarke and his team, for their vital role in helping to develop Suffolk Housing while ensuring it provided high quality homes for those in housing need.”
