What is a Housing Association?

Housing associations are not-for-profit, independent organisations that own, let and manage low cost homes. Some have affordable ownership divisions that help people to get onto the housing ladder. Plumlife is the affordable ownership division of Great Places Housing Group.
Housing associations are not part of the public sector but receive government funding to build new homes and restore communities. They are the UK’s major providers of new homes to rent and often work with other organisations to create jobs and other opportunities.
