Embracing change, shaping the future

What makes us Sovereign

We are a leading housing association, striving to provide quality, affordable homes in happy, successful places.

We have deep roots in the south of England, with almost 60,000 homes focused in a core area covering Berkshire, Hampshire, Oxfordshire, Gloucestershire, Dorset, Devon, Wiltshire, the West of England and the Isle of Wight.

We’re driven by our social purpose, with residents at the heart of everything we do. We build homes and provide great services, but our work doesn’t stop at the front door – we invest for the long-term, creating great places to live, working with residents and partners to support them in realising their potential.  Read more about who we are
