North Star welcomes residents of Darlington Housing Association - Find out more

North Star was established in 2006 as a non-charitable parent to provide services, and bring together, Endeavour, Teesdale and Darlington Housing Associations. In total we own and manage over 3,500 properties.

North Star provides central services to all operating subsidiaries. As far as possible, the Group operates a “one organisational” structure, sharing senior staff and services.

North Star is also a PlaceShaper, a national network of more than 100 community-focused housing associations. Together we own and manage more than 805,000 homes and provide services to more than two million people.  We re-invest 100% of our profits into our homes and communities and have helped more than 60,000 people into work since 2010.
