The Sovini Co-operative

The Sovini Co-operative is a collective of housing providers working together, to maximise the benefits to our customers and communities.

The purpose of the Sovini Co-operative is to provide an option to small and medium sized housing associations who recognise the value of working in partnership, but want to maintain their own identity and autonomy.

The Sovini Co-operative offers all the benefits associated with traditional group structures, without a dominant parent, providing member organisations the opportunity to achieve more together than working alone.
