About us

Metropolitan is one of the UK’s leading providers of affordable housing and care and support services.

We own and manage a large portfolio of nearly 38,000 homes and serve more than 71,000 customers across London, the East Midlands and the East of England.

We have a development pipeline which is on track to deliver new homes at a rate of 1,000 a year by 2017/18.

We deliver care and support to customers with a wide range of needs, specialising in providing services for older people, services for people with mental health issues, and ‘short stay’ services which provide intensive support for short periods.

We are a member of the National Housing Federation and the g15, which represents London’s 15 largest housing associations and houses one in 10 Londoners (www.g15london.org.uk).
