Dedicated to the sector
As the only national procurement organisation dedicated to the needs of the social housing sector, PfH is an essential business tool for social landlords. The consortium generates substantial savings by harnessing the collective purchasing power of housing organisations. By reducing procurement costs, organisations can reinvest resources in front-line services, decent homes and vibrant neighbourhoods.
Efficiencies here and now
With a growing range of EU compliant framework agreements in place and a huge number of Members, efficiencies are happening here and now.
PfH is currently delivering significant savings for housing organisations right across the UK. Amid the array of purchasing consortia promising the sector big results ‘in the future', PfH has been getting its head down and achieving those results today. We're determined to sustain and better these efficiencies in the future.
