Passionate about great places to live
Formed in 2008, GreenSquare Group is a major provider of housing, regeneration, care and support and commercial services across Wiltshire, Oxfordshire and Gloucestershire.
Our mission is to increase the opportunities for people to thrive by building great homes and communities. Providing this to those on low incomes and those most at need is at the heart of our purpose – it is what we exist for.
However, we know that providing great places to a range of customers is also important. It means that both GreenSquare and the communities we serve will be more sustainable and healthy. It also allows us to provide more homes and opportunities in the future by making profits to reinvest.
We use our strength to make a wider contribution to society. We act as a force for social good – to make a difference. We reinvest our profits not only to deliver our main aims but also to deliver a range of projects and services. These complement and add value to our wider community.

What are we trying to achieve at GreenSquare?
At GreenSquare we make a difference.
We increase the opportunities for people to thrive by giving them access to great homes and services to match. This supports the creation of strong and vibrant communities.
We make a difference to people’s lives – and this is something we want to continue doing, for more people, every day.
Our values guide our actions
All for one – we work as a team
Do what it says on the tin – we get it right first time
The things we could do – we actively look for ways to improve
Boo to bureaucracy – we keep it simple.
Our strategic objectives
Valuing our customers
Our homes will be at a quality that we can be proud of, with services to match. When someone is looking for a great place to live, we want them to think about GreenSquare first. We will have a good understanding of all our customers so that we can deliver what they need in a way that suits them.
Meeting housing and related needs
Our customers will include those looking for their first home right through to those who need a home that meets their support needs. We aim to protect the valuable social housing we have.
We will use our particular skills and resources to help provide support services to help people improve their lives.
Growth with a purpose
We will increase the number of new good-quality homes for affordable rent, purchase, and shared ownership.
Every penny counts
By maximising opportunities, working smarter, and increasing efficiency across the group, we will have more resources to create more great places where people want to live.
Able to stand on our own
We will develop our commercial activities to make a profit to support our growth and add financial strength to the group. We will carry out commercial activity to support our social purpose, never as an end in itself.
A great team
We will continue to develop a culture that encourages people to meet their potential and deliver excellent customer service.
How we are going to achieve these objectives is outlined in our Business Plan, which contains the goals and targets we are looking to achieve over the next year. It also gives an overview of where we aim to be looking out over the next five years. The Business Plan is reviewed annually.
