About us

We are a social enterprise and a charity with a turnover of over £360m and one of the UK’s largest providers of high quality housing and integrated housing, health and social care. We believe that everyone has the right to a home and we’re helping thousands of people find the home that’s right for them whether that’s

 •renting from us, 

•buying one of our beautiful new homes, 

•or living in one of our integrated health, housing and social care services. 

We’ve been around for more than 80 years and are as proud as ever to be a social enterprise and a charity with a commercial approach. It’s this spirit that means last year our turnover was £360 million and all our surplus was re-invested into the things that matter to our customers like repairs, improvements and building more homes. 

We’re proud of our past but what keeps us going is what we’re doing right now – making a difference to communities, shaping the future of housing and delivering new approaches to healthcare. Home Group’s mission is ‘Building homes, independence and aspirations’.  The strategy puts a focus on house building, and the need for Home Group to build quality homes and places that people want to live in.  It also focuses on the need for us to improve life chances by offering training and development opportunities which help customers to lead independent lives.

What defines us

We celebrate our differences, we welcome diversity and we encourage our colleagues to build their own networks, create their own communities and to share their stories, successes and photos through our internal social network, Workplace by Facebook.  Workplace has become a place to find answers, find like-minded colleagues and to share our expertise and experiences, as well as to encourage and congratulate each other. 



What inspires us

We offer a wide range of award winning colleague benefits including 25 days paid holiday, a competitive salary, flexible working options and special leave requirements, so that our colleagues don't miss out on lifes special moments. We also offer pension and life assurance cover, access to our 24-hour counselling and advice service, the latest IT technology, discounts in over 800 online shops, a competitive car scheme and colleague saving scheme and enhanced maternity/adoption leave. We also give two additional paid days annual leave to colleagues as volunteering days; so they can give a helping hand to those who need it most.  

We also hold an annual awards ceremony, the Home Star Awards which is an absolute highlight of the Home Group social calendar, where our colleagues get to go glam, let their hair down and really celebrate the amazing achievements of their colleagues.  With over 600 nominations and 300 attendees, it’s the hottest ticket in town, but we also hold a quarterly ‘dream team’ awards, where teams can submit their own success story to be in with the chance of winning funds towards a team celebration of their choice.  ‘Proud’ is one of our favorites words!

Colleagues also have the ability to personalize and send e-card to one another, altering managers to how caring, commercial, accountable and energized our colleagues have been and really lived our values as well.
