Placeshapers local benefit, national impact

We are a member of PlaceShapers - a growing national network of over 100 locally based housing providers that together have a considerable influence in national housing policy.

Collectively members own over 725,000 homes between us, which is a full one-quarter of all housing association homes, and our services are used by over 2 million people.

As a member, we act as an individual, independent social business, embedded in the communities where we work. What unites us in PlaceShapers is that we have all agreed to act in accordance with key principles:

  • We put our residents and customers at the centre of what we do and ensure they have real influence on our organisation
  • We care about the people and places where we work and make sure we are providing more than just landlord services
  • We build homes that respond to local housing need
  • We believe in maintaining a strong, independent, diverse and values-driven housing association sector
  • And last but not least, we recognise the importance of local focus and of working actively with our local authorities and other local partners.

PlaceShapers are distinctive. We build more than homes - we shape communities and unite around shared values as a voice for change.
