About us

Hello, we’re VIVID. We're Hampshire’s largest provider of affordable homes

More homes, bright futures

Our vision sums up exactly why we exist and what we plan to achieve. As a locally-based housing association – the largest landlord, with the most homes in Hampshire – we’re totally committed to building more homes to help solve the desperate shortage in our region and tackle the challenge of rising homelessness.

But that’s not all. Just as important to us, is making sure our customers have the support and services needed to have a bright and thriving future.

More homes

This year we expect to build 800 new homes. And our plans for the future will see us build 1,200 new homes (some for rent, some for sale) every year by 2020. We’re building on a wide range of new housing sites throughout Hampshire so that we can meet local needs and aspirations. We offer a choice of housing types which includes: social and affordable rent, shared ownership, market sale and market rent. Our plan is to reinvest the funds we make from both market sale and market rent, to build more homes for social and affordable rent.
