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.
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.
How we're run
We're a charitable housing association registered as a community benefit society (Reg. No. 8009) and with the Regulator of Social Housing (No. L4277).
We’re also proud to be a major provider of care and support services and a number of the care schemes we run are each registered with, and regulated by, the Care Quality Commission.
Following an In-Depth Assessment by the Regulator for Social Housing in 2022, we were awarded G1/V2 status. For more information and view our IDA results please click here.
The delivery of our Improving Lives strategy is monitored by our Board, which has responsibility for the overall management and performance of the Group. It's supported by our Executive Management Team which is led by Chief Executive Julie Doyle.
We're an open and transparent organisation. Each year, we publish a Financial Statement and an Annual Report for Customers to outline how we’ve performed over the previous 12 months, as well as a Gender Pay Gap report.
Our customers are actively involved in helping to scrutinise and shape the services that we provide through our various Customer Panels.
