What makes Paul proud?

“I look forward to coming into work every morning - knowing what a massive difference we make.
Every week 30 families are given the keys to an AmicusHorizon home. I feel immensely proud to work for a social business who’s purpose is to improve lives. Every penny of surplus we make gets spent on new homes and better services.”
