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.
