About Us

Affordable, quality homes and services that enrich communities

We provide homes for rent, affordable home ownership and residential care homes. But we’re more than a landlord – we also build new homes and provide employment, training and community programmes.

Our mission is to make a positive and lasting contribution to the neighbourhoods in which we work. And our focus is firmly on east London and Essex – this has been the case since we started as a small housing association in 1979 – and that commitment hasn’t changed.

We achieve this by:

  • Developing a range of rent and home ownership opportunities;
  • Improving the neighbourhoods where our residents live;
  • Providing extra care and support when people need it;
  • Developing quality, affordable housing; and
  • Engaging with the community to provide employment, training and community programmes.  

We provide a diverse range of affordable housing to meet the needs of the community. Find out more about what we do.
