We are Octavia

Octavia has stayed true to its social purpose for more than 150 years as we have continued the pioneering work of our founder, Octavia Hill, in providing homes, support and care for people in central and west London.

Operating in some of the most expensive parts of the capital, we have built on this legacy through our unique offer that puts people and communities first. We seek to be an exemplar organisation in providing good quality, affordable homes that enable people on lower incomes to live in London. We believe in supporting the diverse neighbourhoods we serve so that people can live well, be independent, make connections and thrive.

We deliver equality through homes, support and opportunity, supporting vibrant communities and better lives for all. As stewards of a proud legacy dating back to 1865, we aim to continue to build and provide sustainable homes and places for future generations to enjoy and be proud of, for the common good.

We are founding member of Placeshapers, a network of housing associations who share a common ethos to put residents and customers at the heart of everything we do.

This website provides Octavia residents with information about our services and how to access them.
