Our proposed merger with Peabody

In July 2021, we announced that we were proposing a merger with housing association Peabody and invited customers and colleagues to give their feedback. Customers could give feedback via letter, through our digital platforms and in virtual meetings.   

In September 2021, the Catalyst Board and Peabody Board met separately to consider all the feedback to both organisations and, in doing so, agreed that the merger would go ahead. Following this, we were granted the necessary consent from our lenders and shareholders and all details of the proposed merger have now been agreed.  

On 1 April 2022, Catalyst joined the Peabody Group as a subsidiary, meaning that we will be working together to provide services to over 104,000 homes and 220,000 customers across London, Kent, Sussex and the Home Counties.   

We are regularly keeping customers updated via our website, magazine and letters.

There will be a further round of consultation with customers this year, before Catalyst and Peabody embark on full merger which is planned for April 2023.
