New Charter formed in 2000 as the new landlords to own and manage homes transferred from Tameside council in Greater Manchester. With a turnover of approximately £100m a year and a workforce of around 1000, New Charter is one of the region’s largest registered providers of social housing. By incorporating Gedling Homes and Aksa Homes the Group owns around 19,500 homes. It came 8th in the 2015 Sunday Times 100 Best Not-For-Profit Organisations To Work For survey and was voted number 1 in 24 Housing's Top 50 Landlords (2014). New Charter also sponsors three academies through its Great Academies Education Trust. This includes two secondary academies (New Charter Academy in Ashton and Copley Academy in Stalybridge) and one primary (Silver Springs Academy in Stalybridge).
