About Us

The Guinness Partnership is one of the leading providers of affordable housing and care services in England.

Our vision is to deliver great service, provide great homes, to be a great business and to be a great place to work. Because everything we do is about our customers, our communities and our people, any profit we make is re-invested in new and existing homes and improving services.
