Sutton Housing Society aims to provide good quality affordable rented housing for people in housing need and who live in or are connected with the London Borough of Sutton. All of our homes are currently within the Sutton area.
The Society owns 485 properties of which 369 are for older people. We hold our own housing waiting list for people ages 55+ who wish to live in a scheme designated for older people and encourage people to apply directly to us for this type of housing. All of our homes for younger people or for families are allocated via the London Borough of Sutton.
All our residents have a named Community Housing Officer; at many of our schemes we provide a more intensive housing service to enable individuals to live safely in their homes for longer. We have a range of community activities and events going on each month which our older residents are encouraged to take part in.
Our Commitment to Quality
This includes redesigning some flats to make them self contained and improving communal facilities. All of our properties benefit from an ongoing programme of planned reinvestment and improvements. As well as improvements to the physical environment the Society continuously reviews its policies, procedures and quality of service. We aim to work together with our tenants in these reviews to ensure that we demonstrate our commitment to shaping our future together.
