Putting customers at the heart

Successful partnerships

We have a successful track record of working in partnership as an active landlord - delivering supported living, extra care, temporary housing and Housing First across the south of England.

Our ambition is to offer high quality accommodation with support that meets the needs and desires of customers. And we’re seeking partners who can help us realise this aim.

Our partnership approach to supported services has been adopted and implemented in line with our Corporate Plan, and it’s our intention to continue to expand our service to those in need.

We want to partner with others to deliver the best possible supported services. If you are a local authority or support provider interested in working with us on this or other homelessness models, please contact Steph Wood, our Head of Supported Housing. Email: SupportedHousing@sovereign.org.uk.

What our partners had to say:

“Over the last year the IOW Council has reduced rough sleeping by 83%, partly thanks to Housing First. Sovereign’s person-centred approach is psychologically informed, enabling a smooth transition from street to home. Working closely with us as their partners, they positively manage risks and proactively identify accommodation solutions at pace, providing safe places where people can recover and rebuild their lives.”

Isle of Wight Council 

“Our relationship with Sovereign has been excellent from the start, conversations are professional and positive. The team are always ready to hear about our clients and to listen to the clients themselves. We believe that Housing First can only work with strong and trusting relationships and we thank Sovereign for everything they put into this collaboration.”
