Supported housing and care services
We’re keen to develop more supported housing and care service schemes, especially in the field of care for older people. This includes sheltered and extra care, as well as units for sale within these schemes. We already work with a number of care providers and their specialist knowledge supports our partnerships and ensures we deliver high quality facilities.
Catalyst by Design is our profit making subsidiary company which develops homes for private sale. We use the profits to cross-subsidise our charitable work as a social housing provider. Following the dramatic drop in government grant for new affordable homes, Catalyst by Design plays a crucial role in funding our work. It also reflects our commitment to developing mixed income, mixed tenure, communities.
Catalyst by Design sold its first properties in 2011, and is currently active on sites in Luton, Kensington & Chelsea and Harrow. Within five years we expect Catalyst by Design to deliver around 300 private sale homes each year.
We are interested in further joint venture opportunities with developers to build homes for private sale.
