A commitment to our purpose
DSF was formed as an independent charitable organisation in 2005 with an endowment of more than £80 million from the Dolphin Square Trust. This followed the sale of the Trust’s leasehold interests in the Dolphin Square residential estate in Pimlico.
Since the beginning, our work has been guided by a robust business strategy, focused on making long-term investments, achieving good returns on capital and utilising our expertise in the property market. We aim to be financially independent and sustainable in perpetuity, gradually growing the size of our estate.
This approach aims to ensure that DSF is in a strong position to make significant investments and deliver much needed homes for an affordable rental price, year after year, without any form of state subsidy.
