Providing homes may be a big part of what we do - but first and foremost we see ourselves as a 'people organisation'. It's what happens in a house or flat that makes it a home - and supporting people to live well in their homes is also a big part of our work. We're a big employer in the region too and work with lots of other organisations so Futures touches a lot of people's lives. In this part of the Futures Museum we share just a few of the many stories of how we've affected people across the East Midlands. Click on the buttons below to see Futures from a range of different perspectives over the years.
