Peabody has agreed to merge with Family Mosaic.

The new single housing association and all subsidiaries would still be called Peabody and, on completion of the merger, would provide 55,000 homes to residents across London and the South East.

Lord Kerslake and Ian Peters commented:
"The new group would build on the track record, capabilities and shared values of Peabody and Family Mosaic to create a truly distinctive organisation. Our combined scale and London focus would enable us to do more together than we could achieve alone."

The formal merger is expected to complete around July 2017.

Gallions housing association became a part of the Peabody Group.

Peabody now owns and manages around 27,000 homes across London.

Later this year, Trust Thamesmead will also join the Peabody Group, bringing together housing and community into a single, well-resourced organisation in the area for the first time in a generation.

The new Chair of Gallions, David Avery said:

"This is a new start for Gallions. There is no doubt this has been a challenging time for the organisation. The immediate focus of the new board will be to look at all of the issues facing homeowners and tenants, and to ensure that residents are happy with the quality of services we provide. We are actively following up on the recommendations of the independent review commissioned by the previous board."
