We are delighted to be recognised for our commitment to not only delivering an excellent service, but to do so in in such a responsible way. CSR isn’t just a part of what we do, it is the essence of who we are. Our mission of “One team, transforming lives” is about much more than being a landlord; it’s about helping to improve the lives of our customers and communities in every way that we can, and not only through our core services.
