Additional services

We pride ourselves on being so much more than just a landlord. We care about what we do, about the people and communites we help, and ensuring that every penny is spent wisely.

As well as providing over 11,000 homes across the eastern region and having an ambitious development programme, which will see at least 500 new homes built per year by 2023 helping to establish even more new communities, we also provide many additional services beyond our stautory landlord duties.

We are a provider of independent living, assisting people to live in their own homes, with our LifeLine emergency alarm, community care service, and sheltered and extra care housing. Our community care service also won the 2017 national Great British Care Awards, Housing with Care category, recognising our excellence in combining life changing housing for older people with the care they need to remain independent. 

We provide tenancy support and welfare advice as well as offering training courses and employment support to assist people into work and to come off benefits.  

We also own 72 shops, six short-stay accommodation schemes, 27 shletered housing schemes, and two extra care schemes.

Why we joined PlaceShapers

"Cross Keys Homes is all about putting customers and communities at the heart of everything we do, so joining PlaceShapers was an obvious choice.

Our vision of 'creating opportunities that change lives through our drive, expertise, resources and passion' is central to our thinking. 

We are truly in it for the long run, here to help those people who need us most, and are committed to making a lasting difference.

We know that a multi-partner approach is key to overcoming the barriers that prevent residents and communities from reaching their full potential and that is why we have recently set up joint ventures, which are innovative in their structure, with Kier Living and Peterborough City Council, as well as supporting community intiatives such as WestRaven Big Local, and Peterborough Foodcycle.

Being a part of PlaceShapers means we can support PlaceShapers to be a strong voice who make the case for what we so strongly believe in to ensure our collective message and values are heard."

Our Chief Executive, Claire Higgins, is a PlaceShapers' board member.
