As an arm’s length management organisation (ALMO) managing housing for the City of Doncaster Council, we work tirelessly to make sure we deliver the best possible service for you, your home and your community. 

The team who helps run this is our Executive Management Team (EMT) which is made up of our Chief Executive and three Directors who specialise in different parts of the organisation. 

Together they help drive St Leger Homes forward with their own knowledge of the housing sector and vision to continually improve our services.
