Our People

Last summer, we wrote to you about changes we were planning to make to how we’re run.

These changes are now in place and we have a new ‘Homes’ Board that will look after the business of all of the housing associations in Longhurst Group - Friendship Care and Housing, Spire Homes and L&H Homes. This will make us much more effective; we’ll be able to cut costs, make the right decisions faster, and give you better value for money with our services.

The ’Homes’ Board has six members who have been chosen for their skills and knowledge. Above all, they share our passion for helping people and supporting the great communities we work in.

Meet your new Homes Board 


We’re Looking for New Board Members.

We’re looking for experienced professionals to join our new Homes Board.

Our Homes Board is responsible for the operational oversight of our affordable housing and care and support business. The Board oversees operational plans and budgets to ensure performance targets are met and risks are effectively managed. It is also the role of the Board to make sure our strategy is informed by the social and environmental context of the communities we operate in and takes into consideration the views and needs of our customers.

We are looking for people with a track record of senior leadership or experience of being part of a Board to join us and drive the future of our affordable housing and care and support services. We’re particularly interested in candidates with a background in one of the following areas:

  • Care and support
  • Asset management
  • Service quality
  • Performance and efficiency
