Having a decent home is a basic right and has a huge impact on people’s lives - from their health, to their wellbeing, and education opportunities.
As a not-for-dividend ethical developer and landlord, which is the equivalent size of a FTSE 250 company, we play a significant role in delivering and maintaining homes and ensuring everyone can access this basic right.
Our significant house building programme can contribute to making sure every single person in this country has a home. In fact, we are playing an important role in increasing housing supply across the UK with a target to build 9,500 new homes between 2016 and 2023.
We are pro-aspirational and develop a range of home ownership options from open market sale to shared ownership.
However we also reinvest our profits to develop homes for rent. In fact we own and manage over 28,000 homes and have a strong track record of maintaining these assets, which are worth over £1bn.
To do this we are focused on being efficient and commercially-minded so that we can reinvest as much money as possible into developing homes for rent.
Strengthening rural communities
During 2015 we completed the delivery of six affordable homes and a community post office in the West Dorset village of Toller Porcorum.
