At Anchor, we believe later life is for living.
We’ve been helping older people get the most out of life since 1968 and are proud to have become England’s largest not-for-profit provider of housing and care for the over 55’s. Our impressive range of services are designed to help you maintain your independence. We make sure all our profits are invested back into the communities we create, ensuring an uncompromising approach to quality and the reassurance that we will always act in the best interests of our customers. We’re driven by relationships, and our continued success is firmly founded on an unwavering commitment to openness, honesty and respect.
Hanover Housing Association and Anchor Trust merged in November 2018. As Anchor, we’re building on our achievements to do more, at a bigger scale, than we could before. Our ambition is to transform housing and care so more people have a home where they love living. Our merger means we now provide 54,000 homes serving more than 60,000 customers across almost 1,700 sites and operate in more than 90% of local councils in England.
Together we’re a bigger, stronger and more resilient organisation, able to invest in new services and innovate to meet future needs. We’re able to negotiate better contracts with suppliers and pool resources and expertise. Plus, this empowers us to give our customers greater value for money.
Our customers now have a bigger range of housing and care options – while our colleagues have wider career choices. We know that quality services start with quality people so we work hard to be recognised as a leading employer to retain and attract the best in our industry.
Coming together gives us greater influence in the communities we serve, influencing care and support locally and working with local authorities, health providers and the voluntary sector. Our experience opens doors, enabling us to be leading partners in Health and Wellbeing Boards and the NHS.
We’re also able to shape national policy and debates about ageing. Our expertise allows us to influence national policies for people in later life. Together, we’re building on our reputations as strong and respected players with politicians, policy makers and the public. We’ll lobby for the best policies for people in later life and work together with key organisations to secure them. Plus, we’ll always ensure that the voices of older people are at the heart of the debate.
With 50 years’ experience of working with older people, you can rest assured that we know a thing or two about making the most of later life.
