The Guinness Partnership is proud to be one of the largest affordable housing and care providers in the country. We own and manage more than 60,000 homes and provide housing and care services for 120,000 customers.

We are a national charitable housing association working across England. Our local housing services are delivered through three regional housing divisions:

  • Guinness Hermitage in the South West

  • Guinness South in the East and South East

Guinness Care and Support provides care and support services across the country.

Our residents tell us that we make a really positive difference to their lives by providing good quality homes in stable neighbourhoods. They also tell us that they want good quality services at the lowest possible cost.

Our history

With over 60,000 homes and 120,000 residents, The Guinness Partnership Group is proud to be one of the largest affordable housing and care providers in the country. But our story starts a long time ago…

In 1890 Edward Cecil Guinness, the great grandson of the founder of the Guinness Brewery, gave £200,000 to set up The Guinness Trust. This is the equivalent of £15 million in today’s money. He wanted to help improve the lives of ordinary people, many of whom couldn’t afford decent homes.

We built our first homes in the 1890’s, in London. They offered communal clubrooms with heated baths and bathing attendants!

In 2012 the housing properties and operations of The Guinness Trust were combined with those of the other main housing divisions in the Group to form a single, stronger, charitable company, The Guinness Partnership Limited.

Today, The Guinness Partnership Limited is a national operation with three Divisions: Guinness Hermitage, Guinness South and Guinness Northern Counties. Working together with Guinness Care and Support Limited they provide the main housing, care and support services to customers.

We are proud that the original philosophy, defined by Edward Cecil Guinness all those years ago, is still relevant today: To provide good quality homes in communities that are stable and supportive.

All links with the Guinness Brewery disappeared a long time ago.
