Places For People

Places work when they have good homes.

At Places for People, we don't just build houses, we create and manage places. With 50 years' experience in placemaking, we know what makes communities thrive.

We build thousands of well-designed, innovative homes across the UK each year, but as a Group, we do so much more than that…

Why Choose Places For People?

Who we are
A family of companies, thinking as one.

From affordable housing to retirement homes to city apartments, we make places where community comes first, and home starts long before you reach the front door.

What we do
We work across the full spectrum of placemaking. We build homes and communities where everyone is welcome and everyone can thrive.

Our markets
We provide and manage every kind of housing, plan and build new developments, manage leisure facilities and offer customer-friendly financial products.

Invest in places
Communities are more than just collections of homes. Whoever they’re for, our places feel safe, connected, accessible and cared-for.

Create opportunities
Through local partnerships and initiatives, we’re helping communities unlock new opportunities and promising futures.

Build communities
Big ideas grow from small seeds. Working with people living and working in our communities, we make good things happen.

People First
All our companies share a promise – to put people first, and treat everyone honestly, courteously and fairly.

Provide homes
We started more than 50 years ago. Today we’re building and managing places to live for people of all ages and circumstances, up and down the UK.

Change lives
By providing shelter and support to give people with complex needs, we can help put them on a new path.

Invest in the future
The UK’s housing crisis won’t solve itself. We’re working on smarter, more sustainable solutions for tomorrow’s homes.
