Across Anchor all of our housing properties and care homes strive to promote relationships between our customers and the communities they live in. We are committed to promoting community initiatives with local services and fostering positive relationships in tandem with our care home residents.

Working in partnership with key health and care professionals is the cornerstone to our approach. We work to foster strong relationships with local groups which both bring people to visit our properties, and offer customers with opportunities to go out, meet new people and take part in new experiences.

We also look to build relationships with organisations and local companies that can raise awareness of our services within the community, tackling isolation and ensuring older people know the housing and care options we can offer them.
