Churchill wins £2.1m three-year cleaning contract with Yorkshire Housing

We are pleased to announce that we have won a three-year contract, valued at £2.1 million, with social housing association, Yorkshire Housing. The contract has the option of a further two-year extension.

Utilising 14 mobile operatives supported by a dedicated management team, we are providing cleaning services for communal spaces. These services will be delivered across 250 locations in Yorkshire, including a mixture of sheltered and general housing buildings. Our bespoke monitoring and reporting system, Mo:dus, has previously demonstrated its capabilities in the housing sector, and was a key determinant in winning the contract.

We were chosen in the tender process not only for our expertise in cleaning, but also for our social values. We have pledged £20k over the contract’s lifetime to the Target Hardening funding pot for Yorkshire Housing residents. This funding will provide safeguarding to Yorkshire Housing customers who have experienced any form of domestic abuse. Safety Planning is also carried out in any affected homes to keep residents and children safe, such as changing existing locks or fitting door chains and window locks. This discourages abusers from returning.

Churchill’s pledge as part of the Employers Domestic Abuse Covenant  meant that this partnership was built not only on a service basis, but also a social aim – to help more people in domestic abuse situations get the help they need through housing and employment.

Robert Agar, environmental and estates service manager at Yorkshire Housing, said: “Yorkshire Housing is proud to be introducing Churchill Group to our team. Churchill’s experience and  knowledge are sure to provide our tenants with clean, comfortable, and safe spaces to live. We are also delighted by Churchill’s commitment to our Target Hardening fund, which will aid us in helping many people in difficult living situations.”

Martin D’Mello, our social housing strategic lead, said: “We are delighted to be working with Yorkshire Housing to deliver clean and safe spaces for their residents. The Yorkshire Housing team does amazing work to help make housing accessible to all.

“Our social value principles match perfectly, and we are proud to be doing work with other socially minded businesses.”
