Social Housing

Providing affordable housing for its population is a goal of many developed nations. Social Housing aims to combat housing inequality, it is not owned privately, rather it is managed by local authorities and registered providers.

Housing association are privately-owned, not-for-profit organisations that aim to provide lower-cost social housing. They're independent but they're also government-regulated. Sometimes they're known as registered social landlords or private registered providers of social housing.

Housing associations provide a wide range of housing. Some only own and manage a few properties, while larger ones might own whole estates.

Offering similar types of housing as local councils, some housing associations specialise in particular types of housing; for example, family homes, sheltered accommodation for older people, and accessible homes for people with disabilities.

We rent houses and flats across North Lincolnshire and help people in their homes, with things like repairs and improvements, or money and lifestyle advice. We also work with lots of agencies with one main aim to create and sustain truly vibrant communities where people have opportunities.We set up in 2007 and have more homes for rent than any other landlord in North Lincolnshire – about 10,000. Our job is to offer people homes they can afford and to the standard set out by the Government’s Homes and Communities Agency.

Colne is a community based, charitable housing association, owning or managing some 3,000 homes throughout north Essex and south Suffolk.
