We exist to make London home, delivering homes that Londoners can afford, whatever their personal circumstances.
We’re a not-for-profit organisation with a focus on providing quality homes at below-market rents for people who would otherwise struggle to afford them. We are both a landlord and a developer, with more than 60,000 existing homes and 8,000 more in our pipeline, and a well-established commercial business from which we reinvest surpluses to support the provision of below market-rent homes across the capital.
Founded in the 1960s to address slum conditions in west London, we’re now one of London’s largest charitable housing associations and a leading advocate and trusted partner to local councils and government, giving Londoners a base and community from which to achieve their potential.
Our work is monitored by the Regulator of Social Housing, an executive non-departmental public body sponsored by the Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities .
We're also a member of the National Housing Federation, which represents more than 1,000 not-for-profit housing associations in England.
We're on a mission
Powered by half a billion pounds of investment through our Better Together strategy, we’re on a mission to improve how we deliver even better-quality homes, connections and places for our 130,000 existing residents, while continuing to build and develop new and more affordable homes, so that more people can continue to make London home.
We have a development pipeline of more than 8,000 homes and are always looking for new opportunities in the capital, and potential new partners who share our values, approach and objectives. In the 2022/23 fiscal year we achieved 459 starts on site and the same number of completions, with more than 60% being affordable housing.
