Our success in achieving this is only possible through the collective contributions of our diverse and inclusive global workforce.

Great Places

Great Places

Great Places Housing Group exists to improve the lives of the people living in our 24,000 homes across the North West and Yorkshire. We are much more than just a landlord, providing a wide-range of services and promoting partnership work to create vibrant, sustainable communities.

The Group, which is supported by approximately 800 colleagues across four regional offices (our Manchester head office, Oldham, Sheffield and Blackpool), encompasses:

  • Great Places Housing Association – providing general needs rented homes and tenancy services as well as accommodation and services that promote independence and wellbeing for some of society’s most vulnerable people.
  • Plumlife – an award-winning affordable home ownership company. Plumlife helps people to fulfil their home ownership dreams through Help to Buy schemes such as Shared Ownership as well as outright sale.
  • Cube – developing quality new homes for market sale and private rent.  

Our history traces back to 1972; however, it was the merger of Manchester Methodist Housing Association and Ashiana Housing Association in 2006 that created Great Places Housing Group.


Octopus Electric Vehicles

Octopus Electric Vehicles (Octopus EV), part of the Octopus Energy Group, was launched in 2018 to offer a specialist electric vehicle (EV) leasing service to help individuals and businesses switch to electric transport. The company offers every EV available with a range of at least 100 miles.

Offering an all-in-one service, Octopus EV’s expert team helps drivers to select the right car, offers charge point installations and provides electricity tariffs designed for EV drivers.

With exceptionally low company car tax rates, Octopus EV has specialised in salary sacrifice schemes which makes the cost of driving electric cheaper than the petrol or diesel equivalent. Placing customer service first, the company helps businesses set up the scheme and offer it to their staff. Drivers typically save between 30-40% every month on the cost of their EV; and at zero-cost for an employer to set up, it’s great for their team, their hiring and retention, and for their sustainability goals.
