Hightown is a charitable housing association (operating in Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire, Buckinghamshire and Berkshire) aiming to help people who need support and care or who cannot afford to buy or rent a home at market values. We do this by building hundreds of much needed new homes and providing care and supported housing services for a wide range of people.
We currently manage over 7,000 homes – mostly in the Dacorum, St Albans, Watford, Aylesbury Vale, North Herts and Hertsmere districts and employ over 1,000 staff (mainly in our care and supported housing schemes).
Hightown’s aim is to provide as many homes as we can at below market rates and a wide range of housing and support for people who are vulnerable and/or disabled.
We are rated highly for financial and operational performance; and have a high grading from the Regulator of Social Housing. Hightown is committed to retaining its distinctiveness and its reputation for making projects happen which demonstrate Hightown’s values and contribution to society.
We believe that, by developing decent homes and supporting individuals to live with confidence, independence and choice, our work delivers a tangible positive impact for local communities
