About us

At Thirteen, we're a caring landlord and developer, providing a vast range of homes for rent and sale, with more than 33,000 properties from North Tyneside to York, with the majority in the Tees Valley.

At Thirteen, we provide our customers with homes, support and opportunities to grow.

In July 2017, Erimus Housing, Housing Hartlepool, Tees Valley Housing, Tristar Homes and Thirteen Care and Support joined in partnership to create one strong social purpose business called Thirteen.

Our 1,500 colleagues provide services for more than 70,000 customers across the Tees Valley and other areas of the North East, including North Yorkshire, County Durham, and Tyne and Wear.

Homes to rent and buy

Whether customers are looking to rent or buy, we have a range of properties to suit all needs.

Our reason for being is to provide good quality homes and support for those in housing need. We provide support for anyone who needs a little help: help to get on the housing ladder, help to pay the rent, help to keep their home in good repair.

As well as property for rent, we have a track record in providing homes for outright sale, shared ownership and deferred sale. By 2022, we also have plans to build thousands of new homes and invest over £100m in improving the homes we manage.

Help and support

We don't just provide and build homes. Thirteen is a social purpose business that values and uses commercial skills to meet our priorities.

Our care and support services offer help for vulnerable people facing a range of challenges.

We also offer a range of housing support services including money advice, extra care schemes to help people live independently for longer, adaptations to homes, help with anti-social behaviour and more.
