About us

Churchill Retirement Living is the fastest growing company in the UK retirement house building sector and we’re looking to recruit people like you. We’re a family-run, privately-owned business and are proud of what we do and the people we work with.

We’ve won a host of awards; most recently we have been recognised by The Sunday Times as the 3rd Best Company to work for, and in 2016 became the first ever retirement living specialist to have been named overall ‘Housebuilder of the Year’ by the WhatHouse? Awards.

Churchill Retirement Living is committed to supporting charitable causes within the local communities in which we work and therefore launched the Churchill Foundation in 2015. Since then, we are proud to have raised over £1,650,000 and have supported over 226 different charities.

The Churchill Foundation supports all subsidiary Companies of Churchill Retirement Living, including Millstream Management Services (MMS), a progressive managing agent of privately owned leasehold Retirement Living accommodation.
