Boost for UK construction SMEs with Homes England bid round

The government’s housing agency has opened a new bid round to secure a range of new strategic partnerships.

Homes England has opened for bids for the government’s Affordable Homes Programme (2021-2026) and is seeking strategic partners with the capacity to deliver affordable housing at scale.

While strategic partnerships have historically only been available to not-for-profit providers, this time Homes England is welcoming proposals from for-profit affordable housing providers and developers, as well as local authorities.

Gordon More, interim chief executive at Homes England, commented: “Our strategic partnership model is about working with ambitious organisations to maximise successful delivery through government funding and use of our wider resources so we can increase innovation, diversify the sector and increase the supply of much needed affordable homes.

“Building on the successes of our existing strategic partnerships, we’re welcoming bids from a broader set of partners that are as committed as we are to design quality and modernisation.”
