About us

Everyone deserves a good quality home – from young families to retired people or those struggling in the housing market. That’s why we’re here.

Clarion Housing is the UK’s largest housing association, owning and managing 125,000 homes: 350,000 people call a Clarion home their home.

Homes are the platforms on which lives are built – and providing those homes is a role we take seriously. We’re committed to providing good homes and great service to all residents.

And we have an ambitious £150m programme to deliver our wider social purpose through our charitable foundation, Clarion Futures: providing help and guidance, developing skills and helping people into work.

Clarion Housing is part of Clarion Housing Group, which is made up of both commercial and not-for-profit subsidiaries. The group undertakes a range of commercial activities in order to invest in our core social mission – supporting residents and providing affordable homes.

Our social purpose

Clarion Futures is our charitable foundation and delivers our social investment programme. This will see us invest £150m over ten years in one of the UK’s biggest social investment programmes – a programme that will generate £1bn of social value.

We’re working with residents and the community to deliver this programme: helping our residents into jobs and training; combatting financial exclusion; delivering digital services, helping young people fulfil their potential; and improving neighbourhoods.

How we help each year

Our commercial activities

Clarion Housing Group is made up of both commercial and not-for-profit subsidiaries. The group undertakes a range of commercial activities to generate revenue to invest in our core social mission:

  • Latimer builds quality new homes across tenures
  • Clarion Response repairs, maintains and improves our homes
  • Grange manages more than 6,000 properties over 200 developments.

In addition, we offer private housing to rent for working households and families whose needs are not met by social housing, but who aren’t able to buy a home. And House Exchange enables social housing tenants to swap homes, providing opportunities for social mobility

How we invest

As a business for social purpose, we don’t distribute profits. Instead, we reinvest to improve our properties and deliver our charitable aims.

Clarion Response: our repairs team

Our Clarion Response repairs team completes 1,000 jobs every day, with 97% on time and an 89% customer satisfaction rating.

Our customer charter

As a landlord, we’re reliable, responsible and fair, and we ask only the same in return from our residents. Through this partnership we enable our residents to build secure, independent and productive lives.
