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.
