Who are we?

Leeds & Yorkshire Housing Association (LYHA) is a small and forward-thinking housing association that manages over 1,500 homes across Yorkshire.  Most of these homes are in the Leeds area, but we also manage properties in Barnsley, Settle, Whitby, Scarborough and Mirfield. These range from studio apartments to four-bedroom houses and from period properties to new builds and estates.

We are committed to helping address the housing crisis. We have an ambitious new-build strategy in place and over the last two years have increased our portfolio by 15%. In 2017/18 we built 90 new homes and are building another 46 this year.  Our focus is primarily on affordable rented homes and we have also begun to deliver a small number of shared ownership properties as well.

We aim to be an Employer of Choice by offering attractive terms and conditions, a thorough induction and plenty of opportunities to learn on the job or through training. We positively welcome and support diversity in our workforce and welcome applications from all sections of the community.
