About us

St. Leger Homes is an award-winning company, which provides excellent housing services across Doncaster. We work in partnership with the City of Doncaster Council, our customers and other agencies, providing homes in neighbourhoods that people are proud to live.

We are an Arm’s Length Management Organisation, or ‘ALMO’, created by Doncaster Council in 2005. Since then, we have continued to improve the condition and safety of our homes, the support we offer tenants and the outcomes we achieve for the Council. 

Whilst we are a housing management organisation, we also run other services for the Council including the homelessness service, lettings, a private lettings agency and resident employment and education services. We are proud of the role we play in supporting residents of the borough not least through our award-winning apprenticeship and trainee programmes. 

Over recent years we have continued to modernise the ways in which we work, improve our services and develop our staff skills, which we do in partnership with the Chartered Institute of Housing. 

No one in social housing is immune from challenges arising out of the cost-of-living crisis, inflationary pressures, labour shortages and the need to have the highest standards of property safety. We are working hard to address these and get ourselves in great shape. When our time for regulatory inspection comes, we intend to be in the best position we can and welcome the opportunity the new regulatory regime provides to raise standards further. 

We expect the next five years to present us with more challenges and opportunities. Whatever happens, we will be there to support our tenants. We will continue to champion Doncaster as a great place to live and work. 

We take a great deal of pride from the quality of homes we manage and we are conscious of the potential we have in supporting our residents to live great lives and our overall contribution to the environmental and economic success of the City. Doncaster is a pleasant and compassionate northern city with a rich industrial legacy, St Leger has a major role to play as a key stakeholder in turning that legacy into a successful future. 

It is our mission to:

‘provide homes in neighbourhoods where people are proud to live’
