Anchor Hanover is England’s largest provider of specialist housing and care for people in later life.
Hanover Housing Association and Anchor Trust merged in November 2018.
As Anchor Hanover, we’re building on our achievements to do more, at a bigger scale, than we could before.
Our ambition is to transform housing and care so more people have a home where they love living.
Our customers are at the heart of everything we do. So before coming together, we consulted with them and used their views to guide our merger. You can find out more about how we achieved this on either the Hanover or Anchor website.
Why we’re better together:
We’re more efficient:
Together we’re a bigger, stronger and more resilient organisation, able to invest in new services and innovate to meet future needs. We’re able to negotiate better contracts with suppliers and pool resources and expertise. Plus, this empowers us to give our customers greater value for money.
You get more choice:
Our customers now have a bigger range of housing and care options – while our colleagues have wider career choices. We know that quality services start with quality people so we work hard to be recognised as a leading employer to retain and attract the best in our industry.
We have more influence:
Coming together gives us greater influence in the communities we serve, influencing care and support locally and working with local authorities, health providers and the voluntary sector. Our experience opens doors, enabling us to be leading partners in Health and Wellbeing Boards and the NHS.
We’re also able to shape national policy and debates about ageing. Our expertise allows us to influence national policies for people in later life. Together, we’re building on our reputations as strong and respected players with politicians, policy makers and the public. We’ll lobby for the best policies for people in later life and work together with key organisations to secure them. Plus, we’ll always ensure that the voices of older people are at the heart of the debate.
More new homes around the country:
As a bigger organisation we can access more investment to build more properties for people in later life than before. Our ambitious development plans include social rented, shared ownership and homes for sale. We’re also a major provider of residential care.
