A vision lacks purpose until it is shared.

Our story is one of vision, purpose and an unwavering resolve to make a difference.

As individual social landlords, Golden Gates Housing Trust, Helena Partnerships and Liverpool Mutual Homes each held a similar vision.

A drive to empower the people living in our homes; unlocking potential and providing life-changing opportunities.

A commitment to creating sustainable, stable, thriving communities through support, investment, development and regeneration.

United, as the Torus group, this shared vision has become a common purpose.

This is so much more than just a joining together of landlords. As a larger, more diverse organisation – simultaneously landlord, property developer, commercial contractor and social entrepreneur – we’re able to deliver our vision on a larger scale.

We can invest more in our homes and communities, improve our services to better meet the changing needs of our tenants and make a bigger, more significant contribution to the regeneration of our key heartlands of Liverpool, Warrington and St Helens and further afield across the North West.
