Home Group celebrates 80th anniversary

One of the UK’s largest affordable housing providers is set to place its customers and clients at the heart of celebrations marking its 80th anniversary.

During the next 12 months Home Group, which was established in December 1935, will highlight the differences it has made to the lives of customers and clients by giving them a platform to tell their personal stories.

The social enterprise will also highlight the work it does in working with Government and industry bodies to influence the future direction of housing policy and care and support provision.

Mark Henderson, Home Group chief executive, said: “It is a really exciting time for Home Group, not only are we still going strong after 80 years, we remain committed to our vision of providing people in need, quality homes and services, now and in the future.

“To celebrate we are capturing our customers, clients and colleagues stories on film and will be sharing these throughout the year.  Our customers and clients are the reason we do what we do and they have astounding personal stories to tell, all relating to how housing and housing services have made a real difference to their lives.  Whether that has meant an end to being homeless, in need of support to live independently when elderly or providing a supportive family environment for young people.”
