First and foremost, at its heart, Clarion Housing Group is a social landlord – we mix public and private money to provide affordable homes, overwhelmingly for people who can’t meet their housing needs on the open market.
We are a good landlord and providing great, compassionate customer service matters to us. We also manage and maintain our homes to a high standard and invest in improving and renewing them.
Corporate Strategy 2019-2022
Equally building new homes is a high priority for us and our aim is to build 50,000 new homes over ten years.
In addition to affordable homes we will build some homes for outright sale. These will be delivered and marketed through our private development company, Latimer, with proceeds invested back into the Group’s social purpose activities.
We also invest in our communities and are delivering one of the country's largest social investment programmes, Clarion Futures which will invest £150 million over 10 years to improve the lives of our residents and the communities where they live. This supports residents into work and training; manage their finances; get online; improve their neighbourhoods and helps young people to get a better start in life.
Clarion Futures will:
- Support 4,000 people into work and training.
- Provide 250 high-quality apprenticeships a year.
- Give 3,000 residents free debt advice and provide over 2,000 affordable loans to residents.
- Assist 15,000 young people a year to make a better start in life.
We'll work in partnership with residents and the wider community on ‘Transforming lives and communities’.
In addition, one of our key objectives and crucial to achieving and delivering on our ambitions is maintaining our strong financial position.
We want to be an employer of choice too and believe that the key to our success is our people.
