The answer is simple…we’re different! We are not any other maintenance organisation nor are we a traditional registered provider direct labour organisation! We bring the best of both those worlds together meaning we offer an efficient and effective service which meets the needs of customers whilst offering the added value of supporting the communities where we work through local employment and learning opportunities, community engagement all of which ensures we leave a lasting mark on the people we work with.
SLH Home Service was established in 2011 between South Liverpool Homes (SLH) and contractor Penny Lane Builders (PLB) to provide repairs and maintenance services to over 3500 homes in south Liverpool.
Both organisations worked together under a formal partnering arrangement since 1998. Our commitment to partnering and open book working presented an opportunity to establish a Joint Venture vehicle to cement this long‐term relationship beyond this contract term. This helped us to reduce risk and provide mutually beneficial operational and financial efficiencies aligned with the individual growth plans of both partners.
SLH was established in 1999 to help transform South Liverpool through major investment. It is about more than just bricks and mortar, creating places people want to live by tackling anti‐social, behaviour, building skills and opportunities and involving people in their local community.
PLB is a family‐owned business based in Speke, Liverpool that shares SLH’s ethos. It specialises in repairs and maintenance across the North West for registered providers.
