We already own and manage over 10,000 properties across the East Midlands and we're planning to build 300 more per year as part of our new corporate plan for 2020-23. To achieve our new ambitions we need partners more than ever.
Facing the future together
Partnerships are essential to Futures and to meeting the needs and aspirations of people across the East Midlands. Watch this short video to find out more.
Partner with us
Futures is an ambitious developer and through Limehouse Developments we are working with more partners in more local authorities than ever before. But we are always looking for new opportunities to work with land owners and agents, housing providers, developers and local authorities to create more homes and deliver more support to our customers and communities.
Why you should partner with us
- We acquire land and develop innovative, high-quality, affordable homes that help to tackle the UK's housing crisis.
- We have a track record of success and are financially strong, employing long-term, patient capital investment.
- We are a high-performing, financially strong and experienced business which delivers a profit-for-purpose approach.
- We have strong partnerships with local authorities and other developers.
- We ensure that community engagement is at the heart of our development offer to enable us to meet the needs and aspirations of all our customers.
- We are financially robust and have the highest governance and viability ratings from the Regulator of Social Housing.
We have ambitious plans to build or acquire 300 more homes each year to 2023 with a focus on land-led development.
We have a sizable landbank facility which enables us to buy your land quickly.
We can provide a full development service to support your plans to build homes, ranging from initial site appraisals through to the management of on-site construction.
We can support your plans at any stage of the development process, on the most complex of sites.
We have an extensive network of cost consultants, risk managers, surveyors, contractors and manufacturers that will deliver a first-class product to the highest quality.
We own and manage over 10,000 homes across the East Midlands, offering a strong management and maintenance service delivered in the heart of our communities.
We want to invest more in our communities through partnering with housebuilders to purchase Section 106 affordable housing allocations, and through joint-venture partnerships where we can share risk and reward to bring forward more homes, both affordable housing or market-led.
We operate across 23 local authority areas across the East Midlands, providing homes for sale, private rent, part-ownership and affordable homes for rent, investing in housing over the long-term.
This places us in the right position to work even closer with local authorities to bring about regeneration of our streets and neighbourhoods, to deliver more homes collectively, and to provide homes and services to a diverse range of customers.
Supply to us
Our procurement team works hard to help Futures acquire the works, goods and services we need to operate sustainably and ethically. The team's responsibilities include sourcing raw materials and services as well as managing contracts and relationships with suppliers.
We see Futures as an important part of the local community and economy so we are proud to work with and support local businesses.
We are a Contracting Authority and therefore subject to the Public Contracts Regulations 2015.
When looking for new suppliers, all of our opportunities are advertised on our portal (see below for more information).
We're committed to working in partnership with other organisations and local contractors to get the best value for money for our customers, for Futures and for our partners.
If you are a supplier and interested in working with us, you can register and view our current opportunities on our procurement portal.
The portal enables you to:
- view current and future tendering opportunities
- register as a prospective supplier
- keep your own profile information up to date
- download and submit tender documents electronically
- view your own historical records.
We're always keen to engage with potential contractors and suppliers. We normally attend several events each year, as well as hosting our own supplier events, although the current pandemic has disrupted our plans.
Check back here regularly to find out about the main events we will be attending in the future.
In accordance with the Public Contracts Regulations 2015, we publish data showing that we comply with our obligation to pay valid and undisputed invoices within 30 days. This includes the amount of interest paid to suppliers, and the total liability to suppliers from breaches of the requirements (regulation 113).
- 94% of invoices paid within 30 days
- Interest paid: zero
- Interest liable: not applicable.
Work at Futures
We have an ambitious vision and standing still is not an option. So we are constantly improving and working to make life easier for our customers. We can only do this by having the right people working here and by making sure they have the tools and support they need to do a great job.
We believe in an agile approach to work – it’s what you do and the impact that it has that matter – not simply turning up to the same workplace every day.
Everyone needs to feel happy and supported to do their best. So we have an open culture and recognise that sometimes people need extra help, understanding and flexibility when life throws up challenges.
