Tuntum is a BME (Black and Minority Ethnic)-led, Nottingham-based housing association.
Our vision is: Good quality homes and excellent services for diverse communities.
We provide homes
We manage over 1400 properties and provide homes for over 3000 people in 11 local authority areas.
We offer culturally-sensitive support services
We provide accommodation and specialist housing services for older people, refugees, young mothers and homeless young people.
We are BME-led
We are the only independent BME-led housing association in the East Midlands. The majority of our staff and Board are reflective of Nottingham’s black and minority ethnic communities.
Our founders were community activists and professionals from Nottingham’s black community, motivated by the desire to correct inequality in housing provision, to demonstrate black community self-help, to create economic opportunities and to help build social capital.
Today we provide homes and services for people from a diverse range of ethnic groups.
We support communities
We also deliver a number of non-housing initiatives which add value to the lives of our tenants and the communities in which we operate. These include the Nottingham Carnival, Refugee Futures, and our staff-delivered ‘Social Value’ days.
We are well-governed
We are governed by a Board of 12 individuals, who have a wide range of skills and experience.
We are supported and regulated by the government through Homes England.
