Solon is an independent, Bristol based, locally controlled housing association providing homes to local communities.
We provide around 1,300 homes, mainly in Bristol and South Gloucestershire and are working with local councils and other housing association to build more.
We are regulated by the Homes and Communities Agency.
Our Vision (what we would like to achieve)
Excellent homes and excellent housing services for all.
Our Mission (our purpose and how we will achieve our vision)
Our purpose is to deliver excellent housing services, accessible to all and tailored to personal needs. We will provide homes that people want to live in. We will invest in the local communities where we work.
We will do this in the following ways:
By delivering excellent housing services
We provide homes to people on the common housing register in the Bristol, South Gloucestershire and surrounding areas.
We develop new homes in partnership with local councils and other housing associations. Some of these are for rent through Choice Based Lettings whilst others are for sale through shared ownership schemes.
We aim to provide excellent customer care, have excellent customer satisfaction and excellent services on the whole. We work closely with our residents to constantly improve our services.
By ensuring Services are accessible to all and tailored to personal needs
We are committed to providing housing services that are fair and accessible to all residents. We take positive steps to reduce any effects of unfair discrimination and disadvantage and to ensure equality and diversity is central to all areas of our work. There is a real focus on ensuring that residents can access the services they need in the way that they need them.
By providing homes that people want to live in
We involve our residents in a number of ways to ensure that our homes meet residents' standards. You can find out more under the My Home section.
By investing in the local communities where we work
We value the diversity of the people in our local communities and take every opportunity to find new ways to engage with the communities in which we provide housing services. We work to promote respect and tolerance between all people.
We also work in partnership with local agencies to provide supported housing to help people become independent in their local community.
