Peabody and Family Mosaic merged in July last year to create a 55,000-home association.

They are now consulting with tenants over whether they should amalgamate the two associations. This would mean Family Mosaic ceases to exist and all tenants become Peabody tenants if the board approves the change. The newly formed group of tenants from the two housing associations – Peabody Family Voice – oppose the plan because they are concerned the combined organisation will lose accountability.

The tenants have written to the CEO and said they have no faith that the amalgamation of Peabody and Family Mosaic is in the best interests of existing tenants.
