We’re Magna Housing, a customer-centred housing association, mainly working in Dorset and Somerset (our head office is in Dorchester) with a vision to create great homes together. We want to make sure that we constantly add value to the lives of our customers, and our colleagues, and we work hard to deliver this year on year.

Our vision of “Creating Great Homes Together” is fundamental to the work we do and we have ambitious plans to be “beyond the best” over the next ten years.

Magna prides itself on being large enough to influence but small enough to care. We are on an exciting journey – one that requires agility in how the business develops over the next decade, and different, innovative ways of working as we explore new territory.

Inclusion is important to us here at Magna, and inclusion for everyone is our commitment to making long term and deep change to become an organisation known for being inclusive and welcoming for all. We won’t achieve our vision, mission or strategy without being inclusive. It is the foundation of how we work, our culture and our values and how we adjust to make sure our customer and colleague experiences are welcoming and relevant.

Our successes come through an appreciation of difference – different perspectives, experiences, thoughts, actions and skills. All of which add value and generate innovation. Embracing difference will enable us to get it right, first time, and offer the right homes in the right place for our customers.
