Welcome to
Guild Living.

Guild Living will reinstate older people at the heart of our lives and communities. Guild Living is delivering academically-led, innovative ways to live independently in the heart of towns and city centres.

Working in partnership with Legal & General, one of the UK’s most trusted institutions, we are developing a deep and honest understanding of people’s loves, fears, wants and needs.

At Guild Living, we value the extraordinary life of every older person.
