Erimus Housing is a not-for-profit housing association and a key player in the regeneration of the area.
We own approximately 12,500 homes across Middlesbrough and Stockton and provide quality homes and first class services to residents.
Erimus Housing is not just about providing quality homes. Our vision is 'providing homes and strengthening communities in the Tees Valley'.
Erimus Housing is governed by a board, which is made up of 12 people; three tenants/leaseholders, six independent members and three council representatives plus the co-opted managing director. The board plays a vital role in making the decisions on the running of Erimus Housing and ensuring that the commitments, services and performance expected by tenants are delivered.

Erimus Housing tenants are our priority and they have played, and continue to play, a major part in making decisions that affect them. There are a number of ways in which they can be involved in this process.
Area housing forums are held regularly where residents discuss and make decisions on matters that will affect the area they live in, and the residents' panel, which is made up of residents who represent each area and make decisions on issues which affect Erimus Housing residents as a whole. There are also a number of focus groups which residents become involved in to consider specific areas of work.
A massive improvement programme has ensured all our properties meet the decent homes standards but investment to homes is still continuing in a rolling programme. The programme is being carried out with our own in-house team, Erimus Building Services.
Work is also ongoing on projects to improve the environment for tenants including external painting work, fencing and the development of parking spaces.
A Residents' Resource Centre, which the residents help run, houses a variety of facilities for tenants to use at Cinderwood, Thorntree in Middlesbrough.
