The Accord Group is dedicated to meeting
need, whether that be housing need, employment need, health need or whatever
need. It is made up of seven organisations that provide 11,000 affordable homes
and services, including health and social care, to 50,000 people across the
Midlands and beyond.
A not-for-profit organisation, it has 4,200
employees and an annual turnover, including new developments, of about £100
million. The rise of the Accord Group is a remarkable success story. 'In
Accord' explores that story and those of the Groups' partners: Ashram Housing
Association, bchs, Caldmoreaccord Housing Association, Direct Health, Fry
Housing Trust, Moseley & District and Redditch Co-operative Homes.
Through the words of some of those who have
contributed so much to the battle for social justice, empowerment and
inclusiveness, 'In Accord' traces the origins of the Accord Group to the
response to the crisis of homelessness in the 1960s. It takes the story on
through the developments of the 1970s, the rapid growth of the 1980s and 1990s
and on to its position today as one of the largest housing and social care
organisations in the Midlands.
Yet for all the significant growth in size and responsibilities of the progressive Accord Group two constants remain: the desire to strive for social justice and the conviction to give tenants a meaningful voice.
