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

Yorkshire Housing provide more than 18,000 affordable homes across Yorkshire, and employ over 800 people from across the region. The Yorkshire Housing Group was created in 2008 and today the landlord provides homes and services to thousands of families across the region. Employment and training is at the heart of Yorkshire Housing’s ambition for everyone to have the opportunity to live in a quality home they can afford, and to ensure customers maintain their independence and have the help needed to succeed.

Yorkshire Housing has a strong track record in supporting over 350 customers over the last two years and aims to achieve £10m worth of Social Value through community investment activities. Yorkshire Housing’s community investment manager, James Haigh, explains: “Yorkshire Housing’s strategic focus is to enable people to be independent and succeed in whatever they do.

Over the next three years, we’re planning to help 1,000 customers into training and employment. “A key part of this work is to help customers and sustain their tenancies, and with Communities that Work and the network of other housing organisations we can create new opportunities for our customers and communities.”

Chief Executive

Yorkshire Housing has a longstanding commitment to delivering homes and places our customers can be proud of. The last few years have been challenging for many people. That’s why it’s more important than ever to place customers at the heart of everything we do. As the cost-of-living crisis continues to impact so many of our customers our focus isn’t just on continued investment in our homes. We continue to promote all the great things that social housing providers can offer, including a diverse range of employment and career opportunities. Yorkshire Housing recognises that building independent communities includes offering the knowledge and connections that empower our customers to achieve their ambitions, whether that’s training in new technologies, starting a new business or securing a quality apprenticeship. We’re delighted to be a member of Communities that Work and to be part of a network of housing providers who share our aspirations.
