Our full year results reflect the continued hard work and commitment of the team, with revenue up 20% to £134m (FY 2020: £112m) with an order book of £945m.
As a priority, we have continued to invest in technology and innovation with the launch of goldeni our technology platform. This innovation allows us to take a more proactive approach to repairs, by flagging potential issues in real-time, helping us spot potential indicators of vulnerability such as fuel poverty and support our colleagues in Group to achieve our net zero goal.”

Creating healthier homes through data insight
In November, MSPS became the first property maintenance provider to develop an inhouse platform that can consolidate and interpret information from a number of commercially available ‘Internet of Things’ sensors in real-time. Goldeni uses machine learning to provide social housing landlords and tenants with real-time, actionable insights to help them ensure their properties are healthy, legally compliant and more energy efficient.
We were also nominated at the Inside Housing UK Housing Awards for Innovator of the Year.
Contributing to our communities
The MSPS social value team have delivered resident and estate days, digital inclusion sessions and biodiversity projects to create more resilient communities, with the use of data insight allowing us to identify residents at risk and those that are vulnerable, providing them with the support they need.
Continuing our pledge to tacking domestic abuse, MSPS signed up to the Employers Domestic Abuse Covenant taking pledge to support women affected by abuse to enter or re-enter the workplace
Committed to building a diverse workforce
Fostering the talent of the future, MSPS welcomed 20 new starters to complete a six-month placement as part of Kickstart, a government funded scheme which aims to support 16–24-year-olds, who are currently claiming Universal Credit, to find their feet in the working world.
MSPS also showed commitment to breaking down the barriers which prevent women from pursuing roles in the industry by joining the Women’s Trade Network, an initiative founded to increase the representation of women in trade roles. MSPS will work in partnership with the network to raise awareness of the variety of roles available to women and provide training opportunities to encourage greater gender diversity across the industry.
