Calico Homes has retained its top rating from the national housing regulator for the way the company is run and its firm financial footing.

Calico Homes once again earned the highest rating for governance and financial viability in a recent assessment by the Homes and Communities Agency (HCA).

The assessment focussed on a number of key subjects, including how Calico provides Value for Money for its customers, how its finances are managed, and how the company is governed.

By retaining their rating, this reaffirms that, despite the continued challenges faced by housing organisations across the country, Calico Homes continues to perform well and has sufficient plans in place to make sure it continues to do so into the future.

The Calico Group has recently seen an increase of 17% to its consolidated annual turnover, taking it to £37m for 2016/17.

Since The Calico Group is comprised of not-for-profit companies and charities, surpluses are being put back into funding local employment opportunities, the creation of new homes for the town, and life-changing services for vulnerable people in our community.

Helen Thompson, Executive Director of Calico Homes, said:

“We’re all really proud that, once again, Calico Homes has been given such a high rating from the HCA.

“This is further proof that the hard work put in by all our staff is making our organisation stronger, which in turn enables us to support more people in our communities through our growing range of services which are helping people to live safe, independent lives in neighbourhoods that they can be proud of.”
