We are a housing association that provides more than 60,000 people in Sunderland with a place they can call home.
We are a values-led organisation, with a clear vision, a social purpose and a commitment to invest in people, place and property.
We believe everyone has the right to live in a good quality home they can afford. We invest millions of pounds every year to keep our existing homes safe and decent.
We also play our part in helping to deal with the UK housing crisis locally by building hundreds of new, modern homes for rent in Sunderland. Homes that meet the needs of local people.
Not only do we provide vital housing, we support our tenants, residents and communities by investing in services that help people live their best possible life. This includes helping and supporting:
- people back into work
- vulnerable customers
- people affected by domestic abuse, antisocial behaviour, hate crime and hate incidents
- young people to live independently
- all customers and leaseholders to improve their wellbeing
We know we cannot do everything on our own. We value partnerships and work alongside essential partners to make sure Sunderland is dynamic, vibrant and healthy. Our partners include:
- Sunderland City Council
- Northumbria Police
- University of Sunderland
- Sunderland College
- Tyne and Wear Fire and Rescue Service
- Sunderland AFC
We are committed to support the armed forces community and have signed the Armed Forces Covenant as part of our promise to treat people who serve or have served and their families fairly. We are proud to hold the gold award as part of the Defence Employer Recognition Scheme.
Our uniqueness and strength
Our uniqueness and strength come from the dedication, skill and energy of our staff. They live our values every day and work to achieve our vision.
We are proud to have been awarded IIP Gold status in recognition for our commitment to our people.
Our vision is to have great homes, strong communities and inspired people across Sunderland.
Sunderland City Plan
