Derby Homes is an Arm’s Length Management Organisation (ALMO) and is a 100% owned subsidiary of Derby City Council. It was created in 2002 to manage and maintain the Council's housing stock. The function of management and maintenance is delegated to Derby Homes, but the Council retains ownership of the housing stock and all tenants are Council tenants.

Our turnover is around £42M a year and we have over 500 staff. Our core business is the management of and investment in, Derby City Council’s social housing stock, comprising of 12,874 properties of which 66 are shared ownership and 12,808 are for rent.

We directly provide services to 622 leaseholders of the Council and have agreements with external landlords to manage and maintain properties, including Guinness-Northern Counties Housing Association and War Memorial Village Derby. We also manage the Council's  Housing Options, Homelessness and Derby Advice services.

Derby Homes is a Registered Provider and Investment Partner with the Regulator of Social Housing and has 92 properties for rent which it owns in its own right. Additionally, Derby Homes operates 5 flats in a Victorian building which it partly owns and manages in partnership with Revive Healthy Living. 

The current partnership agreement with Derby City Council, which sets out the services Derby Homes will provide, runs until 31 March 2022.

Figures correct as at 31 March 2019.
