About us

Catalyst is a proud member of the G15 group and is one of the UK’s leading housing providers in London and the Home Counties, managing over 37,000 homes. 

We’re at a particularly exciting stage in our history. In April 2022 Catalyst joined the Peabody Group as a subsidiary, ahead of merging fully in April 2023. The new organisation will be responsible for 104,000 homes, with 220,000 residents across London and the South East of England. By joining together, we’ll go further and faster with our plans to improve our services, invest in our homes and communities and create innovative solutions to the challenges of carbon consumption and building safety. 

Our purpose is helping people flourish. We do this by providing great homes and services, by making a positive difference to the communities we serve and by providing an inclusive and inspiring place to work.

We will continue to create and maintain great homes, whilst delivering excellent service to customers every day. We offer a wide range of housing solutions and opportunities for our diverse range of customer needs and requirements including, rent, part ownership or purchase. In doing so, we build more than homes – we build communities.   

As a not-for-profit organisation we reinvest money raised from property sales into developing and maintaining more affordable homes and are set to build 1,300 new homes a year from 2022. 

We have an excellent track record in successfully delivering award winning major development projects and are proud to receive external recognition for the quality, creative design and our commitment to creating homes people love. 

We’re a Sunday Times top 100 Best Company to work for. We invest a lot of time and resources in our people because we know it’s our people who will drive our success. Our values are embedded across the business and we work hard, to deliver outstanding customer service and to be a high-performance business. 

We are absolutely committed to our social purpose, in every part of our organisation. And we always strive to do better.
