About us

What we do

One of the largest housing groups in the Midlands and East of England, we own and manage more than 24,000 homes and deliver a wide range of care and support services.

Operating in over 45 local authority areas, we have more than 1,000 colleagues, three regional office bases and care and support locations throughout our geography.

Improving Lives 2025

Our customers are at the centre of everything we do and we intend to work even harder to identify what's most important to them and provide the support they need.

With a clear set of values that unite our Group, we put our customers first and work in collaboration with partners that share our ambition and vision to improve lives.

We already makes a positive difference to thousands of people’s lives, but we want to do even more.

That’s why we've created our Improving Lives 2025 strategy; a long-term business plan that'll guide the work we do until 2025 and beyond.

We honour our promises and, in doing so, deliver homes and services with real social value.

Together, we tackle the challenging issues faced by our communities, focusing on delivering value-for-money to invest in homes and services that make a difference to the lives of the customers we serve.

Our vision and values

Guided by our core set of shared values, our vision is to improve the lives of our customers and communities we serve.

Our values, which are at the heart of everything we do, were created by our colleagues, who help to deliver the excellent services we provide.

Longhurst Group's values – In it together, Heartfelt service, Own it, Pushing the boundaries, Own it, Fun and fair
