Communities that Work Members

Communities that Work’s membership reaches across all regions in England.  See where our members operate.

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 safe 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 50,000 roofs over the heads of more than 100,000 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.

Hyde are extremely pleased to be reconnecting with Communities that Work in this critical general election year.  We look forward to working together with key partners to improve employment and progression for social renters and crucially supporting the Future that Works campaign together.
