Planning for Real® joined Accord in 2009. We work nationally from our base in Bilston, West Midlands.

Accord is one of the largest housing and social care organisations in the Midlands, providing 13,000 affordable homes and health and social care to 80,000 people and employing nearly 4,000.

Accord is an investment partner with the Homes and Communities Agency, developing new homes across the region with a number of key partners. Accord recently undertook a structure change which saw each of the subsidiaries transfer into Accord to create a single organisation. Those subsidiaries were:

  • Ashram (known as Ashrammoseley)
  • bchs
  • Caldmore Area (known as Caldmoreaccord)
  • Heantun Housing Association
  • Fry Housing Trust
  • Redditch Co-operative Homes
  • Direct Health Group

Each of these organisations has a fantastic track record of delivering key services to customers.  Accord remains a values-led social business motivated by adding social and economic value to the communities where we work. The organisation specialises in involving customers and communities in shaping the homes and services that we provide, including nationally prominent examples of tenant leadership and control. Accord colleagues are award-winning, highly professional and strive to deliver excellence on the front-line and through the corporate support teams.
