At the end of 2016 we owned and managed 272 units of housing. This is made up of a mix of general needs housing (for single people, couples, single parents and families), sheltered housing for the elderly, and a shared house for the young single homeless.
This figure includes 60 units of sheltered housing acquired by our merger with Wilberforce Housing Association completed at the beginning of 2011. It also includes two large properties formerly used for student accommodation, which have
now been converted into 11 self-contained flats for intermediate rent.
Much of our housing consists of older properties that have been acquired and refurbished, but we also have some new build schemes including two consortium developments with other associations at Donald Woods Gardens in Tolworth, and California Road/England Way in New Malden.
The distribution of our housing units by local authority area is:
- Kingston – 198 units
- Elmbridge – 12 units
- Merton – 62 units
