South Lakes Housing (SLH) owns and manages around more than 3,200 homes in one of the most stunning parts of the UK. Our offices in Kendal sit on the edge of the Lake District National Park and just a few miles to the east you’ll find yourself in the Yorkshire Dales National Park. It’s a fantastic place to live and work, that offers the ideal blend of quality of life and real professional challenge. The need for affordable homes has never been greater, with many working families unable to afford market homes, in an area of high demand.
There couldn’t be a better time to join SLH as we have a new business strategy and a business transformation programme underway to take stock and refresh how we work, to ensure that we have the right structure, talent and objectives in place to deliver the very best on behalf of our customers and communities.
We remain as ambitious as ever and have set out clear goals in our 5-year business strategy with strategic themes of ‘Growing, Greening & Transforming’, plans to build 400 new homes, investing to achieve all homes at Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) Band C (except hard to treat) by 2025 and 80% customer satisfaction. We have also introduced our Customer First Commitment and ‘Lets Make it Happen’ training programme which puts customers at the heart of everything we do at SLH and will provide us with more opportunities to learn from our customer’s experience.
We are re-imagining our business, reshaping our services and ensuring that we are poised to respond to the needs of our customers and communities.
