We’re a ‘profit for social purpose’ organisation managing more than 25,000 affordable, mostly recently-built homes to suit all kinds of lifestyles. 

As well as homes to rent for people on lower incomes, we offer properties for retired people, homes for sale through part-buy, part-rent schemes, residential lettings and key-worker accommodation.  

We started out as a cooperative housing provider in 1964 and built our first properties at Derwent Court in Willington, Derby, in 1968. We’ve diversified over the years into areas such as market rental and student accommodation, and now we cover the country.
