Housing 21 is a leading not-for-profit provider of Retirement Housing and Extra Care for older people of modest means.
We operate in nearly 200 local authority areas, managing around 20,000 Retirement and Extra Care Living properties and providing over 42,000 hours of social care each week.
Our Strategic Plan 2019 – 2022 sets out our strategic priorities and the targets we are working towards to achieve them.
Our guiding principles
Our three guiding principles are: 21, Better and Experience. We seek to apply these to all that we do.
We are committed to providing a modern, forward-thinking 21st century service. This includes updating and modernising our existing housing, as well as developing new and innovative property designs and service models for the future. We will challenge ourselves to think differently, embracing the disruptive potential of new technologies and the challenges and opportunities of social change.
We strive for continuous improvement and innovation in all that we do. We will never become complacent and will constantly challenge ourselves to do better and achieve better performance, quality and value for money. We aim to be ‘better than good’ and work hard to provide excellent services we are proud of and our residents deserve.
We aim to provide a consistently excellent service and a great experience for all the people we serve. We seek to engage and empower residents to make choices and exercise control over the services they receive and to devolve decision making to local staff who are closest to the residents whenever practicable and possible. We are committed to acting ethically and openly in all that we do, questioning whether we are ‘doing the right thing’ and being ready to acknowledge and learn from mistakes. Ultimately the success of Housing 21 rests on the satisfaction we provide to our residents.
We have two distinct service offers: Extra Care Living and Retirement Living
We’re proud of our role in providing older people of modest means with good quality housing and care. Our award wins and shortlisting show that others believe we are doing a great job too!
