Our journey started in 2004 when the Liverpool City Council submitted its Housing Stock Options Appraisal. At this time, Liverpool Mutual Homes (LMH) was conceived as a tenant-led organisation with tenants at the heart of all decision making.
Following the stock transfer from Liverpool City Council on 1st April 2008, LMH became the newest housing association in Liverpool, managing over 15,000 homes in the city.
LMH is involved in a wide range of commercial and social activities and sees itself as a social entrepreneur - creating social dividend which is used to support initiatives that address deprivation, promote inclusion and support communities.
From day one of transfer we started work on investing over £1.5 million a week to improve homes and services. This meant that 50 homes per week had double glazed windows fitted and central heating installed.
Nearly £400 million has been spent on improving homes and services and over the next 30 years, almost £900 million will be spent to continue to maintain our properties to the highest standards.
We have captured highlights from our journey to share with our customers and these can be seen in our tenant leaflet.
