We put residents at the centre of our business, and we are committed to a high-quality experience within our homes and from our services.

We have already entered into contracts with housebuilders to provide 8,840 affordable homes and will fund at least 20,000 by 2022. We would like to provide some of those in your area. We are also keen to help you to deliver your housing targets by working in partnership with you to unlock development opportunities.
