Formed in 1964, Derwent Living is a ‘profit for social purpose’ organisation providing affordable housing to suit a range of lifestyles. Its mission is to be an excellent provider of affordable housing in the Midlands – a private body with a social purpose.
As well as homes to rent for people on lower incomes, Derwent Living offers properties for retired people, homes for sale through part-buy, part-rent schemes, residential lettings and key-worker accommodation. Derwent Living’s primary focus is providing good, affordable housing and improving services for residents through greater resident engagement and involvement.
Much of the organisation's stock is new-build, with modern, well-designed features. Derwent Living is committed to continuing to develop new homes in response to widespread housing need. The organisation has a subsidiary, Derwent FM, which manages student accommodation across the UK through the Derwent Students brand.
