We are one of the UK’s leading and award-winning providers of affordable housing in London, the south east of England and neighbouring areas. We are primarily a group of ‘not-for-profit’ organisations (headed by Hyde Housing Association). Our main business is to provide and manage good quality and secure accommodation, at prices people can afford to buy or rent on long tenancies.
Hyde was established in 1967 to provide homes for those left behind by the housing market. Today, we put nearly 49,000 roofs over the heads of more than 105,000 people who might not otherwise have one, as well as providing services to help them improve their life chances and to realise their potential, enjoy their environment, work meaningfully and contribute to their community.
The housing crisis in the south east of England is a huge and longstanding problem that we cannot solve on our own. We work with others to design and build homes to a high standard, creating more affordable housing for those in the most need. The homes that we build, as well as the ones we already own, include those for shared ownership, for social rent, for outright sale and for private rent. Income from the homes we sell funds more homes and services.

We are regulated by the Regulator of Social Housing and have a strong and well-established governance structure that includes independent board members and a sector-leading resident engagement model. We also have established risk, performance management and financial planning frameworks which are overseen by specialist staff.
