We have an excellent track record in successfully delivering major development projects – building homes to high standards and providing sustainable and mixed tenure communities.

Our reputation as an award-winning developer and our expertise in transforming communities makes us a strong partner of choice for local authorities, developers, residents and others.

Developer panels

We’ve been selected to be on two important developer panels: the GLA’s London Development Panel which covers London, and the HCA’s Delivery Partner Panel 2 covering the remainder of the country.

Award-winning quality


We are committed to sustainability in the construction and management of our homes. Catalyst is one of the only two housing providers in the country to achieve gold in the highly challenging SHIFT sustainability benchmarking scheme.

Expanding our development work

New homes

We expect to build more than 7,000 new homes by 2020, housing 21,000 more people.

New product development

We work in partnership with local authorities and other housing associations to deliver innovative affordable housing products and services.

Supported housing and care services

We’re keen to develop more supported housing and care service schemes, especially in the field of care for older people. This includes sheltered and extra care as well as units for sale. We already work various care providers – their specialist knowledge supports our partnerships so we can deliver high quality facilities.

Private sales

We use profits from our private sale homes to cross-subsidise our charitable work as an affordable housing provider. We sold our first properties in 2011, and are actively developing more homes for sale on sites in Luton, Wycombe, Harrow, Brent, and Kensington and Chelsea. Within five years we expect to deliver around 300 private sale homes each year.

We are interested in further joint venture opportunities with developers to build homes for private sale. If you would like to discuss any development opportunities please contact us.
