About us

We're a national leader in providing a range of high quality, affordable homes and services designed exclusively for over 55s.

We have around 19,500 rental, sale and shared ownership properties in approximately 600 locations across England. This includes nearly 2,500 Extra Care Housing properties where residents can access 24-hour care on site. We also have Downsizer Homes in London and southern England.

Our services for residents include Hanover on Call, providing 24/7 alarm call monitoring and telecare assistance, and our free and confidential Be Wise advice services. Be Wise has helped identify over £8 million of extra income for residents
over the last five years.

For over 50 years, our expertise and track record in innovation have helped to make us a trusted provider for those wishing to live independent, active and fulfilling lives. We're a not-for-profit organisation - any surplus we make is reinvested into maintaining our properties, improving our services and building more homes for older people.
