We firmly believe that our difference lies with the people who work here.

Founded in 2000, The Calico Group has grown from a small housing provider into an award-winning group of specialist companies and charities. More than 700 staff have joined us on our journey, and together we work with a shared purpose: to make a real difference to people’s lives.

To do this, each part of The Calico Group has its own specialism and expertise. Together, we’ve established a track record across the North West for providing a complete community service that includes housing, healthcare, support, employability and construction.

I started at The Calico Group almost four years ago. When I first started, I was shy and not very confident. The Calico Group has given me an opportunity to grow and develop in my job as Maintenance Assistant, and to make lots of new friends. I now work closely with building contractors and customers, and have grown in confidence. Thank you to The Calico Group for the chance to be the best I can be.
