A North-East based strategic business consultancy, Prosper, is made up of a team of skilled experts, operating within the public sector. Formed over 10 years ago, we are now regarded as the partner of choice for many landlords, schools and local authorities in the region.

Prosper offers a number of core services, Business Transformation Delivery, New Build Development Consultancy and expert efficiency driven Procurement Solutions.


How it All Began

Following the introduction of significant government funding for social landlords aimed at improving housing stock quality through the Decent Homes programme, a Framework Procurement Consortium, NE Procurement, was formed for North East Social Landlords to create greater efficiencies via unified procurement.

The founding partners of NE Procurement were Your Homes Newcastle, Coast and Country Housing (now Beyond Housing), Erimus Housing, Housing Hartlepool and Teesside Housing (now part of Thirteen Group), South Tyneside Homes, Derwentside Homes, (now part of Karbon Homes), Northumberland County Council and Dale and Valley Housing (now absorbed into Believe Housing).

Iain Sim appointed as Chair of the Board of NE Procurement.
