The FirstPort Group to manage luxury retirement communities in new partnership

The FirstPort Group has partnered with luxury retirement living provider Platinum Skies, a part of the Affordable Housing & Healthcare Group (AHH), to oversee its communities across Dorset, Wiltshire, and Somerset.

The six schemes, exclusive to those over 55, have been developed by Platinum Skies, offering luxury retirement living in vibrant communities made affordable through a shared-ownership model.

FirstPort has been appointed to manage Platinum Skies’ thriving retirement communities in desirable locations across the South Coast. The diverse portfolio consists of retirement villages and apartment complexes, each equipped with a range of facilities including a bistro, bar, lounge, activity room, treatment room, and the support of an on-site Community Manager to foster a connected community exclusively for those over 55.

FirstPort will manage the buildings’ maintenance, amenities, and communal facilities shared by residents. FirstPort’s Director of Retirement, Gareth Cayford, said: “We are delighted to have been appointed to manage the Platinum Skies developments. These are outstanding schemes which demand the services of a property manager with a broad range of skills and expertise.

“Offering a supportive community in a safe, comfortable living environment, without compromising independence, is a real focus for us. We are really looking forward to working with AHH and meeting our new residents.”

Mark Edwards, Managing Director of Platinum Skies, commented, “We are looking forward to working with the FirstPort team to drive innovation, enhance our service, and deliver more value for our homeowners.”

FirstPort manages over 1,400 retirement developments across the UK, caring for around 63,000 properties. This latest contract has enabled FirstPort to expand its existing portfolio in the region further and continue to offer its wealth of expertise and experience in residential property management.
