Established in 2004 and operating from a head office in Long Stratton, just a short drive South of Norwich on the A140, we manage nearly 5,500 homes throughout East Anglia; see where these are located on the Saffron Property Map.

We provide a wide variety of houses and housing services, including Housing with Support and Housing with Care schemes for older or  vulnerable people, and our lifeline alarm service, Contact Care.

Saffron is a housing association registered with the HCA (Homes and Communities Agency), the government agency responsible for regulating housing association performance and for investing funds in new social housing. Saffron is also an Industrial and Provident Society and an exempt charity, registered in England by the Financial Conduct Authority.

After Saffron’s first inspection by the Audit Commission in 2008 we were rated as ‘two star and promising’, which was an excellent achievement.  In 2009 we were delighted to be awarded the Investors in People Bronze Award and ISO 9001 & ISO 14001 accreditations. In 2013 we were pleased to have our continued commitment to improvement recognised with Investors in People Silver Award.
