View Company: Sovereign Housing Group
Sovereign Housing Association is one of the most active developers of all housing associations in the UK. In 2013/14 we built 1,113 new homes for a range of tenures; making the most of our relationships with local authorities and our ability to build successful and sustainable partnerships with house-builders.
We currently own and manage more than 37,500 homes, working with a large number of local authorities and other partners to provide services to over 85,000 residents. We are also a major provider of Low Cost Home Ownership homes; we currently manage around 4,800 shared ownership and leasehold properties, and a growing portfolio of market and sub-market rented homes, commercial property and temporary accommodation.
In 2013/14 we also built 34 homes for outright sale. We employ around 1,000 staff and have offices in Newbury, Abingdon, Basingstoke, Bristol, Christchurch, Exeter and Swindon.
Our financial strength (we have a rating of AA with Standard and Poor’s and A1 with Moody’s) underpins our aim to grow to 50,000 homes by 2018. We aim to achieve this through a combination of development - including the redevelopment of under-used and outdated assets - and stock acquisition in our core operating areas.
