First and foremost a landlord, we aim to provide great customer service to our residents, as well as support for those in need. We manage and maintain our homes to a good standard by investing in them. We're tackling the shortage of affordable homes and plan to build many thousands of new homes in the next ten years. And importantly through our Community Foundation we help improve the lives of our residents and neighbouring communities. As a business for social purpose, we manage our money well so that we can invest every penny of our surpluses into what we believe in – our residents and our communities. We want to maximise life chances for our residents and create places for communities to thrive.
