Who we are

image: Optivo logoAt Optivo we understand the difference safe, secure and affordable homes can make to people’s lives.

We develop places with people, not profit, in mind, building homes and communities where people can thrive.

We’re one of the largest housing providers in the UK and a member of the G15 group of London’s largest housing associations. We’ve over 45,000 homes across London, the South East and the Midlands, giving 90,000 people somewhere affordable to call their own.

And we’re growing. Our Strategic Plan 2020-25 has been launched with ambitious plans to have started the construction of 7,000 new homes by 2025 (85% of which will be affordable).

We’re about more than bricks and mortar – we’re about building communities. Our founders were passionate about helping families with a housing need. As Optivo, we’re continuing that strong commitment to social purpose.

We invest heavily in neighbourhood community programmes, helping our residents with training, careers advice, financial and digital inclusion so they can develop their potential and live their best lives.

Our residents are at the heart of everything we do - it’s what distinguishes us and makes us unique. At every level of the business our residents work alongside us as one team, to co design, scrutinise and improve our work so we can deliver brilliant service and value for money.
