Social and Affordable Housing


Bluebird is devoted to providing social and affordable housing for the most vulnerable members of our community. We have strong alignment with local Community Housing Providers, who deliver homes for key workers and people on the social housing register.

Our projects really matter.

Bluebird is intimately familiar with Social and Affordable Housing and Built-to-Rent (BTR) working with Community Housing Providers and developers closely. These homes are contributing more much-needed housing to the market and pushing the design boundaries for this new asset class.
