We used to be called Luton Community Housing but we’ve changed our name to Squared because we’ve moved on a lot in recent years. Our services now go beyond housing and we’ve got big ambitions for the future.
The name Squared reflects everything we do. When a number’s squared it’s a multiple of itself – it’s more. When it comes to us and our services, we listen… but we listen more, we care… but we care more and we’re supportive… but we’re more supportive.
We’ve been working with our local community for over 50 years and believe our new name is a fitting reflection of us. It reflects the way we foster order, stability, equality, honesty and firm foundations that people can depend on. And it reflects the way we’re all in it together, offering guidance and a clear pathway in all we do, encouraging more balance and a brighter future.
We believe the world would be a greater place if everything was fair and Squared.
What we do
We don’t just give people a key, we offer on-going support to unlock their potential. We don’t just give advice; we offer genuine warmth and non-judgmental care. We don’t just provide business services; we offer expert consultancy and management.
We provide homes for independent living and homes with support in Luton and Central Bedfordshire. To complement this work, we also run a lettings service for private landlords; a social enterprise inspired cleaning and gardening service; a Lottery-funded cognitive behaviour therapy service called Open Minds for residents of partner organisations and an employee excellence focused HR consultancy - People Excellence.
Why we do it
We believe everyone deserves a chance to improve their life. Our goal is to help vulnerable local people get clear on their challenges and how to overcome them and empower them to make the right choices – for now and their future. We aim to be there with practical and emotional support at every step as they make the journey to a happier, independent life.
How we do it
We’ve adopted a coaching culture that focuses on asking people simple but powerful questions. It helps them see for themselves what they need and then make crucial decisions that they follow through on.
This approach not only helps our residents and tenants to progress further and faster, it helps our team members to develop as people and professionals too. In turn, this means they’re then able to give our customers even stronger services and support.
