“The year has been one of extraordinary change for the housing and care sectors. We’ve built on the strong foundations we established in 2014/15 and taken some important steps towards the objectives we want to achieve by 2018.” – Neil Braithwaite, Chair of the Board.

2015/16 in review

Highlights of our year include:

  • building 908 new homes for social or affordable rent, shared ownership and outright sale
  • awarding £125,000 to 136 of our customers with our Aspire Awards programme
  • investing £183m in maintaining and repairing our existing homes
  • starting three pilot projects to make our homes and communities more dementia friendly
  • our first Star Awards which recognises the outstanding work Guinness people do.

“Guinness is about more than just the physical fabric. We’re both clear that Guinness is a Customer Service Business, and it’s our job to focus on the things that matter to our customers, as well as to ensure this is a well-run business.” – Catriona Simons, Chief Executive.
