Worthing Homes

Worthing Homes is a multi award-winning housing association (registered provider), which owns and manages 3,500 homes in the Sussex coastal area. The company provides social and affordable rented homes, key worker accommodation, shared ownership, sheltered housing and new homes for local people.

As an independent social business working with local people and partners, Worthing Homes places its energy into creating places where people want to live; investing in services as well as homes to help nurture the communities in which it works.

Robin King, chief executive of Worthing Homes, said: "The way we behave as an organisation, as a team of people, defines who we are. We serve the neighbourhoods in which we operate with openness and honesty, professionalism and respect.

"But, above all, we recognise the benefits that are created through building strong communities."

Similarly, as a local housing provider, Worthing Homes is committed to using small local companies and supporting the communities in which it works.

The company's success is based upon this local and very responsible model. Taking pride in being a good client and treating everyone that the company works with respectfully is part of Worthing Homes' ethos.

Mr King added: "We are extremely passionate about quality service and believe it is important to recognise the role that smaller companies can play in helping us to deliver a first class service."
