The Store: evaluation

Derwentside Homes, Prince Bishops Community Bank (PBCB) and their funders and stakeholders, in particular the Friends Provident Foundation and Northern Rock Foundation, wanted to assess the sustainability of the rent-to-own model developed by The Store social enterprise in Stanley, Co. Durham.

The stakeholders also wanted to look at whether it could be either scaled up or replicated elsewhere.
