Here at Arches Housing we are all about doing the right thing (even when it’s hard).  We want to stay true to our roots as a social housing provider, and have a clear vision of ‘contributing to people’s wellbeing by providing safe, secure, warm homes that meet their needs’. 

We have some really great things going on that our staff are proud to be part of.  This includes an ambitious £3m Investment Programme which aims to make sure all of our homes achieve the new and customer-led Arches Home Standard by 2021.

We have worked hard with our Board over the last year to secure the highest level rating of viability and governance from the Regulator of Social Housing, and have new funding arrangements which mean we can deliver our 2018-2028 Growth Strategy.  This includes an exciting Development Programme to deliver at least 150 affordable new homes to the Sheffield City Region in the next 3 years. 

We are also committed to identifying better and more efficient ways of working so that we can provide a high quality service to our customers, and are investing in refining processes and systems throughout the organisation over the next 2 years.  Yes we have a lot going on, and that’s why it’s important that all of our staff share our values to make sure we are going about things together, and in the Arches way. 

Our new employee-led Values are:


Choosing to do the right things over the easy things, being determined to see things through and being true to our roots.


Being responsive to people and opportunities, generating solutions swiftly as a consequence of trust and freedom to take decisions


Sticking to what actually matters to make it easier to do a good job and achieve positive outcomes


Appreciating the life experience skills and insights of others, listening with empathy, seeing to dignify everyone involved.


Recognising that we do more with others than alone, building honest supportive relationships inside Arches and beyond.
