A Ripley-based housing group has unveiled plans to triple the number of homes that it builds.

Futures Housing Group, which manages more than 9,000 homes throughout the East Midlands, has published ‘Inspiring Futures’ – its blueprint to improve what it does and provide new homes for sale, rent and shared ownership.

Inspiring Futures also sets out how the group will boost the local economy by helping people get the training they need to do the jobs they want thanks to its further education company, Access Training.

It also explains the organisation’s plans to build more than 1,000 new homes throughout the East Midlands.

The company also say they want to press ahead and forge new, working partnerships and work in different markets as they drive to provide effortless experiences for its customers.

Lindsey Williams, Chief Executive of Futures Housing Group, said: “A major part of our vision is to make it as effortless as possible for customers to do business with us and build more than 1,000 homes in 2020.

“We have an ambition to provide a greater choice of homes to customers, so they can choose affordable housing, private rentals, shared ownership or they can buy with us.

“Inspiring Futures is a corporate plan which builds on our strong financial foundations.

“It clearly demonstrates how we intend to improve, provide value for money services and offer more choice to customers.”

The new plan has been launched just weeks after both Futures and Access Training, which enrolled more than 1,150 people on training courses last year, received glowing reports from two separate Government agencies.

Lindsey added: “It is a really exciting time for Futures Housing.

“The new plan makes our ambitions really clear.”
