North Star operates in the North East and owns around 4,000 properties all of which are for affordable rent. Of these around 600 units are for people with support needs, including women’s refuges, homeless services and accommodation for people with learning disabilities, mental health problems and complex needs. North Star properties are located in many highly deprived communities across Teesside and South West Durham. They also deliver extensive community support and services and plan to build 500 homes over the next five years.
North Star is a not for profit organisation and has worked in Teesside since 1974. It was the first in the sector to achieve IiP Platinum, it was awarded 3 stars by the Sunday Times Best Companies when it was described as extraordinary and in 2018 was voted number 1 landlord in England by its peer housing associations. The organisation has undergone significant organisational development to create distributed leadership with trust at its core.
