Across the region we manage over 9,000 homes; house more than 15,000 tenants; provide over 1,500 bed spaces for people with support/care needs, in over 250 properties; and provide more than 950,000 hours of care and support each year.

We care about what we do and the way we do it and you must be motivated to want to make a difference and provide excellent care and support to all individuals we support.
