Two new contracts awarded and three under negotiation. A great start to 2009!

We have been awarded two contracts due to start early in 2009, and we are currently negotiating with three other prospective clients. The Northern Ireland Housing Executive is commissioning us to carry out a strategic review of temporary accommodation and other residentially-based services for homeless people across Northern Ireland. The services are funded by a combination of Homelessness Grant, Supporting People Grant, Health and Social Services payments and charitable funding. The review will cover more than 100 different services provided by 40+ different providers, including the Housing Executive itself. Medina Housing Association – part of the Spectrum Housing Group – has commissioned North Harbour Consulting to carry out a strategic review of the association’s equality and diversity work, starting with a review of its E & D policy and action plan, advice on aspects of its equality impact assessments, and equality and diversity training for Board members and senior managers.
