How do KHT fit into First Ark?

How do KHT fit into First Ark?

KHT and KHT Services (our trading subsidiary and social enterprise that provide repair and maintenance services) now sit under our regulated and non-charitable parent company, First Ark.

The landlord and housing services are currently taken care of by one of five companies within the First Ark group, KHT. This allows the group to provide a range of additional non-housing products and services.

What about corporate responsibilities?

What about corporate responsibilities?

Corporate responsibilities have moved to First Ark under the restructure. This move enabled the KHT board to focus on its role as landlord, meeting tenant needs and delivering a range of quality services. The First Ark board focuses on the strategic direction of the Group, ensuring value for money across its corporate operations.

What is the new group structure achieving?

What is the new group structure achieving?

It is successfully improving efficiency across the organisation. Less time is spent on administration and more on decision making, helping tenants to become more involved and empowered. With each company focused on its own role, duplication has been cut down and there is a greater focus on delivery and outcomes.

It has also opened up greater opportunities for local businesses and organisations around Knowsley and the North West. We are generating funds to invest in social enterprises, which provide important services, employment and training opportunities for residents.

We enable people to succeed and create life changing opportunities through growing our own business as well as others. As we expand, we invest in housing and other community activities. We then reinvest our profits to create a positive impact on society and our local communities.

What about partner opportunities?

What about partner opportunities?

Opportunities for partnerships and joint ventures have grown, as our current structure has removed many barriers and red tape.
