Subsidiary brands and companies
The Group comprises six business streams that deliver housing and related services to six distinct customer groups with specific and different needs.
There is some overlap, where a tenant may also be a customer who accesses non-housing related services.
For example, a general needs tenant accessing Key Unlocking Futures or Progress Lifeline services.
- Progress Housing Group - general needs housing, housing for older people, including extra care and independent living, shared owners and leaseholders (known internally only and operationally as Progress Homes).
- RWP - supported living accommodation, primarily for people with a learning disability or autism. - Read RWP brand guidelines.
- Progress Lifeline - technology-enabled care services. - Read Progress Lifeline brand guidelines.

- Key Unlocking Futures - a specialist charity providing support to young people, single people and families, and supported housing (homelessness accommodation and women’s refuges) - contact Key for brand guidelines.
Our service delivery and support teams support the six business streams.
