Hear our inspirational founders talk about how we began 50 years ago in our short video.

2017 was an exciting time for Hyde. We marked a momentous occasion: our 50th anniversary, which gave us the perfect opportunity to reflect on the enormous amount Hyde has already achieved and how much more we can do in the future.

That year, we set out a new direction for Hyde; to provide a great home for everyone.

To see how far we’ve come over the last 50 years, watch this short video of the three inspirational young men, the late Michael Hollingsworth MBE, John Childs and Ted Watts, who founded Hyde all those years ago.


We know that Hyde cannot do this on its own. The housing crisis in London and the South East of England is a huge and longstanding problem, which will only be solved if we all play our part and all work together. That includes government, developers, landlords, charities and residents themselves.
