We are one of the largest housing associations in England, with 57,000 homes across the country. Almost 20,000 of our properties are in London, with nearly 1,000 in the Royal Borough. As a business for social purpose we aim to provide a wide range of housing and community services to the 161,000 people that call an Affinity Sutton home – ‘their home’.
We are actively contributing to tackling the housing crisis and plan to build 12,250 new homes in the next ten years with the majority for social/affordable rent and about a quarter of our programme dedicated to low cost home ownership.
“We want to safeguard the future of social rented housing in Chelsea for our current and our future tenants.“ Rachel Underwood, Project Director.
