As one of the largest housing providers in the south with 40,000 homes and assets and 100,000 residents living in them, we’re committed to building more homes and enabling opportunities for home ownership.
We build quality, sustainable homes and we believe that collaboration is key to solving the housing crisis. By partnering with other organisations that share our values we know what can be achieved.
We believe that everyone has the right to a high-quality, safe, warm and sustainable home. But it’s not just the homes, we believe in creating places where people feel part of a community. It’s a place where you can dream big, achieve your goals and be who you want to be.
Our development commitment
There aren’t enough homes for everyone who needs one.
To help change this we’re building at least 12,500 new homes by 2030.
Innovation is going to be key.
We need to increase delivery speed and take control of quality. Challenge accepted.
We’ve committed to:
- Working with Homes England and other organisations that share our values to solve the housing challenge through collaboration.
- Creating high-quality homes. Our homes will enhance communities and be well-managed and maintained.
- Working in partnership with local authorities and other housing associations, as lead partner of Wayfarer. We’ll continue to expand on the 100,000 homes owned or managed by Wayfarer partners throughout the south of England.
- Delivering innovatively. We’re going to maximise the number of off-site manufactured homes we deliver to minimise our carbon footprint and increase delivery.
- Using our in-house construction team to build our own homes. We’ll improve efficiency and quality and help to build great places to live.
- Having a solution for every site. We can provide the right development whether that’s land led, regeneration, joint ventures or Section 106
By working together and forming strategic alliances we’re able to achieve so much more. Some of our key partners include:
Created in 2003, Wayfarer Partnership is a consortium of 17 different affordable housing providers and local authority partners who own or manage over 102,000 homes. As lead partner we’re using our combined forces to increase the supply of affordable housing.
Working with Homes England provides the support to deliver on our combined ambitions, creating places that enable communities and helping more people access quality homes where they’re needed most.
Through our work with Advantage South West we’re collaborating with Building Better to fully utilise Methods of Construction (MMC) to help address the need for affordable homes. As a member of the consortium we’re leveraging the collective purchasing power to buy homes from leading MMC manufacturers.
It was great to work with Abri delivering 72 one, two and three-bedroom apartments in Woking over two adjacent sites. The team of consultants worked extremely well and engaged productively with the council at all levels to deliver a scheme through planning in record time.

Vistry and Abri have been working in partnership to develop a 120 unit housing scheme in Sayers Common. It has been a pleasure to bring our teams together, in order to successfully deliver this site and hopefully this just one of many projects we will deliver together in the future
Divisional Managing Director, Vistry Group
Bloor Homes have worked with Abri for many years, delivering a succession of much-needed newly built affordable homes throughout Hampshire, Wiltshire and Dorset. We have an excellent working relationship with them, developed through our shared values of delivering quality housing for local people, living in communities they are proud to call home
Group Director of Partnership Housing at Bloor Homes
Abri are a long established and trusted delivery partner for Drew Smith/Vistry Partnerships and we have always enjoyed a positive and collaborative working relationship with them. At our Pembers Hill Park development we are working closely both with the Sales Team and the New Homes delivery team who, as usual have been an absolute pleasure to work with. Both teams are working proactively and positively with us on all aspects of the project, responding promptly to our requests for information and playing an integral park in key decision making processes. Partnership working is critical to our ongoing success and we are delighted that Abri share in our ethos and values.
New Business Director at Drew Smith/Vistry Partnerships
As a partnership housebuilder, Keepmoat Homes looks for partners we can work with again and again. In my experience Abri stand out from the crowd as being great to work with. They take a collaborative approach to making development happen. The team are very experienced, they move quickly and do what they say they’re going to do. They have a competitive, commercial approach to development, but also the drive to make deals work. Keepmoat will definitely be looking to work with Abri more in the future.
