We believe in designing homes and creating neighbourhoods that everyone can share and enjoy.  We have approximately 3200 homes across the country from Tyneside to Cornwall. We are champions of the Lifetime Homes Standard and provide expert training and consultancy through our Centre for Accessible Environments (CAE) in-house team.
