Our Story.

Development built on choice, rights, independence and inclusion.

Mersten was founded on the back of a desire to give back to the community; a chance to apply our high-end development skills to create modern, clean and safe homes for those in our society who need it most. We fiercely believe in our social responsibility to make sure that tenants living in social or adapted housing feel secure and are dedicated to making sure our developments are fit for their needs.

Our motto is ‘Property with purpose’ and, for us, that means balancing profit with creating stable, much-loved homes in which people can thrive.

People and property, hand in hand.

In 2015, Mersten was started with the sole aim to provide a more integrated and human approach to property development.

Drawing on expertise in property and social care alike, our founding team understood that delivering much-loved homes for vulnerable people takes more than building capability. It takes understanding, consideration and care–holistic, integrated development that’s as much about people as it is about property.

Proactive partners to care providers.

Over the years, we have become active stakeholders in numerous developments, charting a path of growth and building close relationships with care providers.

Crucially, we’ve gone beyond building. Our insight in the care sector has allowed us to develop complete pathways with care providers, understand the nuances that really make a difference, and become advocates for service users at every stage of the property development.

A leading provider of homes for vulnerable people.

Today, we’re proud to play a key role in empowering vulnerable people, with a track record of successful developments that truly address specific needs. But, even as we continue to grow, we’re relentlessly committed to the approach that got us here.

Mersten has always, and will always, continue to put people first, using our property expertise to enrich lives and create better outcomes for individuals.

Our approach.

The quality of our developments isn’t just the product of our property know-how. It’s driven by the shared passions of our people – the values that inform every decision we make.


Our properties are designed for people to live independently and safely, with as much or as little support as they need.


We believe that people of all abilities should have the right to live in homes that they love.


Our tenants often are affected by Learning Disabilities, Mental Health issues and are in need of either life long, or step down assistance from Support Workers.


We're passionate about our tenants' rights and become advocates for service users at every stage of the property development.

Our people.

Mersten’s success is driven by the unique talents, commitment and enthusiasm of our people.

From large-scale development to social housing commissioning, it’s our diverse experience that gives us real insight into the role homes how having a place to call home can play in empowering individuals.
