About us

Sentinel is the only locally run housing association in north Hampshire. That means decisions on the communities we serve are made right here, not in a distant head office.

We’re a single organisation of just over 200 staff, managing a property portfolio of 8500 homes, 3400 garages, 20 shops plus support services for thousands more customers.

As a not-for-profit landlord, any surplus from our c£50m a year turnover is reinvested back into our neighbourhoods, such as on more upgrades of existing homes, regenerating outdated estates, or simply building more homes.

Our homes range from town centre apartment blocks to rural cottages – so our approach is to focus on what we do best, and then work with councils, schools, advice agencies, and government departments to tackle complex housing-related issues together.

We're run by a board of 12, including five resident board members, plus others drawn from a wide mix of backgrounds in both the public and private sectors.

Our four-strong Executive team is the top level of management, responsible for day-to-day matters and ensuring the board’s wishes are carried out throughout Sentinel.

Although we are an independent housing association, and not part of a group, we do have affiliations and partnerships to ensure the best possible deal for our local area.
