Established in 2004 and operating from a head office in Long Stratton, just a short drive South of Norwich on the A140, we manage over 6,000 homes throughout East Anglia. We provide a wide variety of houses and housing services, including Housing with Support and Housing with Care schemes for older or vulnerable people, and our lifeline alarm service, Contact Care.
Saffron is a housing association registered with the HCA (Homes and Communities Agency), the government agency responsible for regulating housing association performance and for investing funds in new social housing. Saffron is also an Industrial and Provident Society and an exempt charity, registered in England by the Financial Conduct Authority.
South Norfolk based Saffron Housing Trust is delighted to have received an Investors in People Gold Award. Saffron was last assessed three years ago and is delighted to have had its progress recognised.
The accreditation which looks at everything from business ethos to employee measurements, provides a framework for sustainable business success. However it is up to the business itself to create policies and display excellence in all areas to receive the accreditation, which ranges from Bronze through to Gold. Saffron’s policies aim to promote and nurture social responsibility, a culture of openness and develop its existing workforce to meet their demands and those of their tenants.
