Communities that Work Members

Communities that Work’s membership reaches across all regions in England.  See where our members operate.

One of the largest housing groups in the Midlands and East of England, Longhurst Group provides over 23,000 homes and delivers a wide range of care and support services. Operating in 50 local authority areas, we have over 1,100 colleagues, 10 office bases and over 80 care and support locations.

Our customers are at the centre of everything we do and we intend to work even harder to identify what is most important to them and provide the support they need. With a clear set of values that unite our Group, we put our customers first and work in collaboration with partners that share our ambition and vision to improve lives.

The Group already makes a positive difference to thousands of people’s lives, but we want to do even more. 

Together, we tackle the challenging issues faced by our communities, focusing on delivering value-for-money to invest in homes and services that make a difference to the lives of the customers we serve.

Annual Report

Charmaine Simei

Director of Community Investment, Longhurst Group

There has never been a more important moment than now for the housing sector to work alongside the Government to push for greater economic resilience for the communities we serve. The Government’s levelling up agenda and the promise of the Shared Prosperity Fund are doors that Communities that Work are wedging open on behalf of the sector.As a member and Board member I have been really impressed by the sheer breadth, influence, impact and growing network of Communities that Work over the last year.
