At Yorkshire Housing we’re really proud of our history. The Yorkshire Housing group was formed in 1999 and became Yorkshire Housing in 2008. Today we manage more than 18,000 affordable and social rent homes across 20 local authorities. We are a not-for-profit organisation, meaning all our earnings are re-invested into the services we provide.

Our ambition is for everyone to have the opportunity to live in a quality home they can afford. To do this we are growing as a business, building 3,000 homes by 2021 and increasing our range of services available. We are looking to new ventures, new partnerships and new mergers to help our customers, our business and the region.
Our growth will make the Yorkshire Housing pound go further. By digitalising our systems, growing our in-house repairs, improving our services and maximising our assets, we can put more money into developing more properties and improving our services.
More than just a landlord
We’re more than a landlord. Our home improvement services, support services, employment support, business coaches and our benefit and money advice service mean we are able to go the extra mile to support our tenants.
Our home improvement services make a positive difference to the quality of life for older, disabled, vulnerable or ill people living at home. They provide independent housing advice and support to help vulnerable people to repair, improve or adapt their homes so they can live independently and with dignity.
Our independent living services support vulnerable people or people with disabilities to live safe, healthy and independent lives in their own homes. Independent living officers can visit customers in their home and provide a variety of support. Our experienced staff are able to identify what our customers need to remain independent.
The community investment team offers support and training to those looking to get back into employment or get a better job. Our business coaches also support customers looking to start a new business or grow an existing one. With unlimited support and training available, the team are always on-hand to help customers. Access to personal and business development grants are also available through the team.
The money and benefit advice team help customers who are finding it hard to pay rent, manage bills, struggling with debt or are having problems with benefits. The team of experts can advise on welfare benefits, budgeting, bills, saving and many other aspects of managing finances.
