Who to contact

Southern Housing is a new housing association that formed in December 2022 following the merger of Optivo and Southern Housing Group (SHG).

We are still in the process of integrating our internal systems. This means that at the moment the contact details and online services you need to use to get in touch with us will depend on who used to manage the home you want to talk to us about; either Optivo or SHG.

If you know who used to manage your home the contact details you need are listed below. Not sure who to contact? Use our handy postcode checker and we'll tell you.


Here's how you can contact us about a home previously managed by Optivo.
