Rykneld Homes has extended its partnership with 1284.

The new arrangement will build upon work the two have been doing over recent months on the corporate communication of the regional housing association.

Rykneld Homes is responsible for the management, maintenance, and improvement of around 7,600 properties in the Chesterfield area.

It was set up in April 2007 as a non-profit making company to manage the housing stock on behalf of North East Derbyshire District Council.

1284 has been working with Rykneld since May 2023, supporting with press releases, media relations, and stakeholder work.

It included preparation of a Business Plan document which was agreed by the Board earlier in the Autumn.
