Award-winning plucky Pocket!

It has been Pocket’s busiest year to date, and most celebrated…

Since January we have launched seven schemes across five boroughs and moved many city makers into their first homes.  The Pocket team have been hard at work!

And we are absolutely thrilled to have been recognised for our contribution to affordable housing across London with these four awards:
