What we do

The Group operates in seven key markets: placemaking and regeneration, affordable housing, property management, leisure management, development and construction, retirement and fund management.

Placemaking and regeneration

Our placemaking approach goes much further than simply building homes. We look at what an area needs to thrive - whether it is new schools, shops, leisure facilities, job opportunities, access to learning and training or specialist support services.

We work with local communities to plan and design mixed-tenure places, with energy efficient homes, a range of facilities and carefully designed public spaces. Our aim is to create high-quality places where people want to live

Housing management

Thousands of customers benefit from our housing management service. Our teams work throughout the UK.

Repairs and investment in our houses

We continue to invest in our property portfolio. In 2016-17 we invested over £108 million in repairs and maintenance, with more than 160,000 repairs completed.

Our property maintenance, repairs and gas servicing team operates 365 days a year.

Leisure management

We develop and manage leisure facilities  on behalf of local authorities across the UK. We manage 116 facilities, including swimming pools, gyms and sports halls.

Neighbourhood regeneration

We deliver large-scale regeneration projects - like Smiths Dock and Wolverton Park. We also have the expertise to improve the neighbourhoods we manage by helping people into jobs and training, supporting businesses and empowering communities to make changes.

Market rent

We now own or manage more than 20,000 market rented UK homes. As we build new homes at mixed developments, additional properties for market rent are added to our portfolio.

Support services

Our support services help around 6,000 people with different needs. We have a portfolio of supported accommodation and offer tenancy support. Our customer base covers a wide constituency of older people, young teenage parents, people with physical disabilities or learning difficulties, those with mental health issues, women escaping domestic abuse and people striving to overcome homelessness.

Retirement services

Our retirement business is growing, providing properties for sale, shared-ownership and rent - all complemented by a range of care and support services. In 2014 we acquired Girlings, which manages 2,500 properties in around 600 retirement developments across the UK. In 2017 we launched Liberty Retirement Living which is developing new retirement villages across the UK.

Financial solutions

Our aim is to make buying a home more affordable. We've developed our own financial products like personal loans and mortgages. During 2016-17 we provided personal loans to more than 1,900 people.

Landscaping

Our landscaping company works closely with residents to maintain public areas in our neighbourhoods. They also provide a service to clients across the UK.
