Our vision is making it possible to have a place you're proud to call home


You might think of Yorkshire Housing as ‘just’ a housing provider, but we’re so much more than that. We’re here to make a positive difference in people’s lives. So, as well as owning and managing nearly 20,000 homes (and counting) across Yorkshire, we also:


  • Offer money and tenancy coaching  
  • Help older customers live at home independently  
  • Adapt homes to match the needs of our customers   
  • Carry out repairs and replace items before things go wrong  
  • Provide antisocial behaviour support  
  • Get involved with work in the community  



Our five priorities that will help us achieve our vision are:


Great Customer Experience 


We’ll listen to customers and use what we know about them to shape our services. Oh, and we’ll provide extra support where it’s needed. 




Homes and Places to be Proud of  


We’ll create homes that people want to live in. 


- Quality  


- Safety 


- Affordability 


We’ll also be kind to the planet and aim to be one of the first UK housing associations to stop using gas heating and hot water systems.






We’ll deliver 8,000 new homes by 2030. They will be energy efficient, sustainable and affordable to live in. We’ll also refresh our Help to Buy and social and affordable rented options. 


We’ll achieve these priorities by focusing on being:  




Employer of Choice 


We’ll lead the way and make a name for ourselves as an employer. We’ll give you the right support and tools to succeed, plus a package full of benefits.




Strong, Resilient and Innovative Business 


We’ll invest in all the right things, from our ICT to our people. This will make us stronger, helping us to make a difference to our customers and be a business that people want to work for and with.
