North Star structure and history

North Star was established in 2006 as a non-charitable parent to provide services, and bring together, Endeavour and Teesdale Housing Associations. In total we own and manage over 3,000 properties.

North Star provides central services to both operating subsidiaries. As far as possible, the Group operates a “one organisational” structure, sharing senior staff and services.

North Star is also a PlaceShaper, a national network of more than 100 community-focused housing associations. Together we own and manage more than 805,000 homes and provide services to more than two million people.  We re-invest 100% of our profits into our homes and communities and have helped more than 60,000 people into work since 2010.
