Strategic plan - beyond 2020
"Welcome to our Strategic Plan. I am delighted to be appointed as the new Chief Executive to lead West Kent beyond 2020.
There is a housing crisis, a shortfall of 345,000 homes in the UK every year. There are also growing concerns about the provision of suitable options for an ageing population, and a recognition that the service offer needs to change - people are living longer, want an active ‘post retirement’ and to stay in their own homes as long as possible.
West Kent has an outstanding 30-year track-record and an exceptional reputation for providing quality homes and excellent community services across Kent. We are highly successful, deliver on our promises, are committed to Kent and our communities and we want to do even more.
This strategic plan has the challenging ambitions:
- to increase our homes in management
- to continue to invest to support thriving communities
- to both modernise our service offer and ready ourselves to reflect changing needs for an ageing society.
Our vision is to deliver places to live and space to grow for our current and future residents. As we enter our
fourth decade there has never been a more important role for us.
At West Kent we are passionate about the role a housing association can play in society and believe the values of
an organisation are what makes it special. By working in partnership with like-minded organisations, and being
open to learn from others, we believe we can deliver the best for Kent."
