Creating opportunities. Transforming communities. Changing lives.
We exist to provide quality homes and to work with our partners to shape services that improve people’s lives and attract further growth and investment into the places where they live.
Always at the heart of this, are the people in our communities. We have an important role to play in helping to meet objectives that result in safe, inclusive and healthy communities, and increasing economic activity. We believe successful places need successful people and our actions will therefore always support our people first and foremost.
We place the customer at the centre of our service, by actively engaging and involving the communities that we serve. We recognise that people must feel that they belong; that they can contribute, influence and make their own choices, with support as necessary.
Our years of experience of managing successful places in Manchester is enabling us to develop products and skills to create a new approach to delivering socially mixed, multi-tenure housing, which are planned not just as housing developments but more importantly, as homes.
By being fluid and creative in our approach, we’re able to work with our communities, so that they have access to local quality spaces and places for enjoyment as well as facilities that improve health and well-being, offer education and training, jobs and work opportunities, help with starting a business or becoming self-employed, advice and support on managing money and benefits as well as access to the city’s vast sports, entertainment and cultural activities. Everything they need to sustain a happy, healthy life.
