Islington and Shoreditch Housing Association (ISHA) is a community and neighbourhood-based housing organisation, managing and developing quality affordable housing for people in North and East London since 1933.
We have 2,500 homes and employ 73 people. We lead the North River Alliance (NRA) and work in close co-operation with other local housing associations, including Black and ethnic minority (BAME) housing associations, special needs housing associations and co-operatives.
Our G1 Governance rating and V2 Financial Viability rating was re-confirmed by the Regulator of Social Housing in August 2021 following an in-depth assessment.
