We are a housing provider with a social purpose.
Our vision is to improve people's lives through high quality homes and services. Whilst we take a commercial approach to housebuilding, we reinvest all of our profits into building more new homes and supporting the communities where we work.
We have 38,395 homes across London and southern England and our property portfolio is diverse. We build award-winning affordable, private and social rented homes, student, key worker and temporary accommodation, as well as supported housing and retirement homes.
Commercially we are one of the strongest players in our field, with a £303.3 million turnover last year. We have a Fitch A credit rating.
Once we have built our homes we stay on as landlord, maintaining a long-term relationship with our customers.
We are proud of our commitment to our customers. We offer business grants to budding entrepreneurs, support to homeless people and funding for social enterprise schemes.
We have a set of values which:
- determine how we work, how we achieve our vision and strategic objectives, and how we fulfil our purpose
- underpin our purpose, vision, mission and strategy
- drive our behaviours and culture and, therefore, our performance
Caring by nature
We put people at the heart of everything we do. We treat everyone as individuals and always seek to do the right thing.
Working better together
We collaborate, creating opportunities to innovate and improve. We empower people to achieve great results together and we take responsibility for our actions.
Thinking for tomorrow
We understand and anticipate people’s long-term needs and expectations. We take care to manage the lasting impact we have on everything around us.
