What We Do At Probe (Hull) Ltd

In August 2012, Probe secured funding to be used in the regeneration of 36 empty homes within the private sector. As a result of this, Probe and Hull College have extended their joint working agreement. We hope that by refurbishing and bringing houses back into use that we will improve neighbourhoods, provide training and create income to re-invest in Probe (Hull) Ltd.

What People Say About Our Work

Here is the best part of our impressive services

Mary Glew

Cllr Mary Glew

"On Middleburg Street I would say the transformation of the property itself is unbelievable. The team has taken a derelict, unloved house and created a wonderful new and affordable home for a first time buyer, or may be a professional couple, wanting to get on the housing ladder. As regards the project as a whole; clearly not only are they national but international award winners. I feel the project is working in an excellent way delivering training on the job to many of the construction trades enabling young people to gain the necessary hands on experience for the future."

Probe Homes provides a vital service in the local community. I think it is fantastic how they provide students with the practical skills needed to get on in the construction industry. The fact that Probe provides students at Hull College with the opportunity to have hands on experience on a construction site rather than in a workshop clearly shows why they consistently produce work at the highest level.

"The Rank House has also been regenerated by Probe and that is going to be rented out by people of modest means, affordable housing. This is another great project which is rejuvenating the City acting as a reminder of what a great City Hull really is."

"I'm so pleased that Probe have taken on the J. Arthur Rank house. I started the campaign on my show on BBC Radio Humberside, to do something with it as I thought it was a disgrace. Probe is making me and lot of local people happy with the work they're doing there. I also like the fact they're employing young people, local trades-people and giving others a nice place to live that otherwise they may not have been able to afford, and doing it all as a non-profit organisation. Very impressive."

“It is really encouraging to see the difference that community-led organisations like Probe (Hull) Limited can make in bringing back empty properties into use as new homes. Lion House is a scheme that Probe can be justifiably proud of, and I’m sure future residents will enjoy living there.”

"The house on Middleburg Street in East Hull was a derelict wreck which has been transformed by students from Hull College who have learned how to plumb the house, re-wire, build an extension, plaster and decorate. I have heard of a lot of win-win situations but this one tops it."
