We're Sovereign

We’re one of the largest housing associations in the country, providing quality, affordable homes, within strong and sustainable communities, for people priced out of the housing market.

Who we are

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 58,000 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
