Additional services

Octavia provides thousands of people in west and central London with well-managed, affordable homes. We believe that good homes make for better lives. With that in mind, we also provide care and support services to older and vulnerable adults. Flexibility is central to these services: our housing is adapted for different levels of care and support, but we also organise alternative support care, ranging from floating support and outreach services to day care and activity centres.

Octavia Living is the development wing of Octavia, building desirable homes for private sale on the open market. All the revenue from property sales is reinvested into our services for lower-income residents.

We aim to build happier lives and strong communities. The Octavia Foundation is a registered charity which supports local people experiencing social problems including unemployment, ill health, isolation and poverty.

Why we joined PlaceShapers

"We joined the group simply because we believe that good quality social housing depends far more on local knowledge than on economies of scale. At a time of significant change it is important that this principle, learnt over many years, is not lost"
