About the Group

Oak Court

Our mission is to provide housing and care to improve opportunities for people.

In 2016 emh group celebrated 70 years of existence. The early housing association was formed by a small group of ex-servicemen with an initial capital of £ 39 and 10 shillings. Now in its 71st year emh Group has expanded significantly; it has a turnover of over £ 100m and 1100 employees. The Group provides housing across 40 local authority areas in the East Midlands and has assets under management in excess of £ 700m. The Group is in good financial shape and retains its Standard and Poor A+ credit rating. In addition, it enjoys the housing regulator’s highest ratings for both financial viability and governance. In 2014 the Group took over a Derbyshire-based Care and Support business, which provides accommodation for and supports people with learning disabilities.

Emh Group is an ambitious organisation with a national reputation for excellence. In 2016 it was recognised with several awards, including the UK Housing Awards Outstanding Development Programme of the Year, and the National Green Deal & Eco Awards Housing Association of the Year. Its affordable housing developments have also been rewarded: CIH East Midlands Development of the Year, Forum for the Built Environment (East Midlands) Scheme of the Year, and RICS East Midlands Residential Scheme of the Year. In Leicester it is undertaking the largest affordable eco-friendly Passivhaus development in the UK with 68 homes. Earlier this year the Group, as part of a consortium, was awarded significant funding by the Homes and Community Agency to build 670 affordable new homes locally.

Established in 2012, the emh group apprentice academy has also achieved regional and national success, being named Leicester Mercury Business Awards Apprentice Employer of the Year in 2016, and being included in the City & Guilds Top 100 Apprenticeship Employer list for two years running. The Group is an Investors in People (Silver) and equal opportunities employer.
