Housing 21 is a leading not-for-profit provider of Retirement Living and Extra Care properties for older people of modest means. Our core purpose and commitment is to provide high quality housing with support or care for older people of modest means, enabling them to live well with dignity and autonomy.
Our vision is to ensure that older people who most need it can access high quality housing with support or care, whilst being involved and empowered to ensure the services provided meet their individual needs and preferences now and in the future.
With the support of Homes England, we delivered 691 new specialist housing properties for older people in the previous financial year (2021/22). We also aim to continue to develop more properties with a firm plan to develop 400 units per annum alongside up to 200 acquisitions of high-quality older persons housing. Our emphasis on new development has never been at the expense of maintaining the quality and desirability of existing properties for our current residents and we will continue to maintain high levels of investment in this area.
We have invested significantly in modernising the communal spaces of our properties and upgrading kitchens and bathrooms. We have also ensured that our properties are all energy efficient and affordable to heat with 99 percent of properties now achieving EPC level C or better, bringing benefits to residents faced with increasing fuel prices as well as being an important step in our journey toward achieving zero carbon emissions.

Proposed merger with The ExtraCare Charitable Trust
Housing 21 and The ExtraCare Charitable Trust have decided not to merge the two organisations following a period of due diligence.
In March this year, it was announced both organisations were engaging in consultations about a potential merger.
However, in a joint statement released in August, the organisations’ Chief Executives, Bruce Moore (Housing 21) and Mick Laverty (The ExtraCare Charitable Trust), said: “Following detailed discussions, Housing 21 and The ExtraCare Charitable Trust have agreed that the two organisations can best serve their residents by remaining as separate entities and are therefore no longer intending to merge.
“Housing 21 and The ExtraCare Charitable Trust will each continue to develop and operate their own distinct models and services to enable older people to live better lives.”
