Catalyst Housing renews Homeownership Westminster contract

Catalyst Housing won the contract to continue delivering the Homeownership Westminster service on behalf of Westminster City Council. Homeownership Westminster is a one stop shop service designed to ensure that high priority groups including social tenants, those on the council’s waiting list and residents access precious intermediate market homes in one of the most expensive parts of the country.

Catalyst has been delivering the service since its launch in 2009, establishing its brand and forging relationships with partners across the city. In this time, Homeownership Westminster has enabled 345 households to access sale or rental opportunities. The service’s excellent work was recognised at the 2010 Affordable Home Ownership Awards when it won Outstanding Achievement in London.

Tom Titherington, Director of Business Development & Marketing at Catalyst said; “we’re delighted to have the opportunity to continue our work with Westminster City Council in helping people realise their ambitions of finding a new home. The success of Homeownership Westminster demonstrates our commitment to our customers and the importance we place on partnership working. This innovative model has shown that it adds value to the intermediate market by establishing close customer relationships which have enabled us to focus on and support the City Council’s priority groups.”
