Churchill Retirement Living

​Churchill Retirement Living is a privately owned, family-run housebuilder, and is the UK’s second largest retirement homes specialist. It was founded in 1994 by brothers Spencer and Clinton McCarthy, and has an ambition to be selling 1,000 homes a year by 2019. It has a head office in Hampshire and regional offices across England.

Homes for sale from the housebuilder are apartments designed for retirement living, typically one- or two-bedroom apartments with some communal facilities and a 24-hour hotline available in case of emergencies. It offers services to help buyers, including home exchange, removal services and sometimes help with legal fees and specialist financial advice for the over-55s.

The company chooses the sites for its new developments based on location and good transport links so residents are able to easily access local amenities and leisure facilities.

Churchill Retirement Homes has won numerous awards over the years, including several WhatHouse? Awards, notably the Housebuilder of the Year title in 2016, becoming the first retirement specialist ever to win. Most recently at the WhatHouse? Awards 2019, it won Gold in the Best Medium Housebuilder category.

In 2015, it launched the Churchill Foundation, with Dame Esther Rantzen DBE as its Patron. The foundation aims to transform lives through investment in three areas: the support and wellbeing of the young, the promotion of health among the elderly and the relief of sickness, disease and human suffering. It also supports smaller, local charities with donations.

Award Comments
Covid-19 quickly and ruthlessly entered our lives, but also shone a spotlight on business values, revealing how companies responded to the crisis; not just in
terms of financial realities in a harsh economic climate, but more importantly and poignantly in the way it looked after its staff and customers.
By definition if you are a retirement homes developer, your customers, your residents, are the elderly and vulnerable.
Churchill’s response was swift, with safety the lead driver, introducing protocols to support owners, as well as reassure and engage, led by the lodge managers, who effectively became frontline health workers.
Churchill was third in The Sunday Times Top 100 Best Companies To Work For, testimony to its culture and also was awarded the highest industry score in its latest HBF Five Star customer Satisfaction Survey rating.
During the year Churchill launched a 24-hour careline support service, as well as an in-house training company and expanded the Hampshire headquartered
business with a new northern regional office.
As ever, Churchill, with a marketing review focused on the customer journey, was a loud and compelling voice in lobbying for its sector, always aware of the wider industry issues that need addressing.
