The parent company own more than 12,000 high quality, affordable homes in 15 local authority areas across Wales. These include more than 3,000 dedicated properties for older people as well as innovative supported housing solutions for people with a range of particular needs.

The group has two subsidiary companies, Castell Ventures Limited, delivering catering and care services to people living and working with Wales & West Housing properties.
