Exciting times as Twenty11 trial ends

Our Board met at the weekend and a decision was made to formally end our trial and to confirm our long-term future as a housing provider for the community.

We welcomed our first tenant in September 2018 after we launched as a different type of housing organisation, responding to modern-day challenges and with a desire to provide tenants with more than just a home.

We were initially a pilot for six months and at the end of this period, the results of an independent research study were very promising. These encouraging results meant our Board agreed to extend our pilot to a two-year trial. The trial has now ended and Board has agreed for Twenty11 to go ahead.

Alan Keers, Chief Executive of Twenty11, said: “Board spent a lot of time debating the different options and evaluating the outcomes of all the information we have gathered during the pilot/trial over the last three years. They were also presented with an independent report from Sheffield Hallam University which gave an in-depth analysis of how Twenty11 has performed.

“It was a huge decision for our Board to make and I am thrilled that after a long day of information sharing and debate, they decided that continuing with Twenty11 was in the best interests of the community.

“I would like to thank everyone who has been involved and I look forward to the great things that I know Twenty11 will achieve in the future.

Trevor Morrow, Group Chief Executive, said: “This is a fantastic result for Twenty11 and the group, and I am really excited to see how things progress as it expands. We have learnt so much from the pilot scheme and the trial, things that will benefit the whole group. Well done to everyone who has worked so hard to make Twenty11 the success it is.”
