Bernicia has been listed amongst the Top 50 UK Social Landlords in 24 Housing magazine’s annual survey.
The influential publication highlighted the continuous improvement in customer satisfaction evidenced by our recent tenants’ survey where overall satisfaction with services hit 90%.
The magazine also said: “The Bernicia Foundation, funded by Bernicia’s commercial arm whose entire profits are used for social purpose, pledges £1m in grants to community initiatives and talented young people.
“In partnership with the Northern Learning Trust, Bernicia has delivered skills and qualifications for local people in hard-hit communities to support them into work and training.
“Over the last two years, this has resulted in 166 learners securing job interviews, with 69% progressing into employment.”
The list focuses on the work of landlords who put their tenants first with hard evidence of how they support them.
