About Us

The Calico Group: innovative charities and businesses working together to make social profit, rather than financial profit, the driving force behind our wide range of high quality services.

We want to help individuals of all ages and backgrounds, and their families, live peacefully, prosperously and healthily, in warm, secure homes and safe, friendly communities.

We have a passion for making our customers’ lives better.

Our flexible group structure and expanding range of services help us adapt to the fast-changing environment in which we work, and keep our customers and staff at the heart of everything we do.

Each part of The Calico Group has its own specialism and expertise. Together, we have a track record of providing a complete community service across housing, healthcare, support, employability and construction.

Health, Care & Support

At Calico, we provide a range of aspirational programmes to help you improve your physical and mental wellbeing, and to stay safe and independent. Our life-changing support tackles a range of issues, from homelessness and complex needs to help with drug and alcohol dependency.

Individually, each of these specialist services is strong, but through collaboration and innovation we know we can have an even greater social impact.

Syncora brings together our expertise, our passion and commercial strength, enabling us to deliver bold new services and offer end-to-end support for people who most need it.

Syncora offsets the effects of cuts to public expenditure by creating exciting, integrated solutions to complex social problems. As part of The Calico Group, everything is underpinned by our excellent governance, high standards and the support of a leading housing provider.
