Our Vision & Values

Vision: Transforming lives, revitalising neighbourhoods

Our values:

  • We are courageous
    We stand up for what we believe in, owning our actions and challenging ourselves and others to be the best we can be, taking responsibility for our decisions and actions, standing up for those without a voice.
  • We are trusted
    We work together to build positive relationships, protecting our customers and our colleagues, great collaborators, acting with honesty and integrity.
  • We care
    We put our customers first every time and care passionately about people.

Our strategy is broken down into three objectives

People at our heart
We will improve the quality of service provided to our customers, delivered by engaged and fulfilled colleagues. We will do more to sustain tenancies and provide secure homes to those who do not have one.

Homes for the Future
We will raise the standard of our homes and consider every option for those that may not be fit for the future. We will continue to build and grow to help address the housing crisis.

Places to thrive in
We will align our investment in homes and services to have a positive impact on the places in which we work, with a particular focus on helping those customers who face the greatest challenges.

Key to achieving these objectives are some common themes:

Climate responsibility
We will develop our climate responsibility roadmap and ensure colleagues and stakeholders, are clear about the role they will play.

Safety
As well as ensuring our customers are safe in their homes we’ll seek to improve the wellbeing, mental health and safety of our customers and colleagues and the safety and security of the places where they live and work.

Value
We’ll reduce costs through better working practices and effective procurement, where we can do so without undermining service standards and quality, and we’ll maximise income by improving collection rates and optimising our commercial activities.
