We are three businesses: Aspire Housing, PM Training and the Realise charity. Together, we blend commercial expertise with social purpose and revitalise communities by providing homes, training, employment and support.
Created in July 2000, Aspire Housing, the parent company, is a leading housing provider, place shaper and property developer in North Staffordshire and South and East Cheshire, with over 8,500 homes and a significant number in the development pipeline. We are a financially strong business with a social purpose. Our profits are reinvested in new homes, in revitalising communities and in a comprehensive range of innovative support services designed to transform lives.
In 2008, PM Training joined the business as a leading training provider and best practice social enterprise. Since 1982, PM Training has supported more than 25,000 individuals and more than 1,200 partner organisations and remains the largest provider of apprenticeships for young people in Staffordshire.
In 2009, Realise, the Aspire charity was created. With gift aid from PM Training, donations from local people and business, Realise provides essential support to help people in Staffordshire to progress in their education and gain employment.
