About us

Lincolnshire Housing Partnership – LHP was created in April 2018 following the merger of two established Lincolnshire social housing providers who have come together to create a new 12,700 home landlord providing affordable rental and shared ownership homes as well as a range of services to help support people and communities.

By coming together, we are combining our strengths to achieve more, creating a more resilient organisation, with the capacity to invest more in existing and new homes. Taking advantage of our size, we’ll also be able to improve efficiency and value for money, while still putting customers and our employees at the heart of our decision-making.

What we do

Covering the whole of the historic east coast of Lincolnshire, LHP provide affordable rental and shared ownership homes as well as a range of services to help support people and communities.

As a charitable community based organisation, we channel profit back into services and projects that benefit you – our customers and local neighbourhoods.

Working for us

We offer a range of career opportunities and encourage our colleagues to develop their skills with tailored training programmes.

We also offer an attractive benefits package including generous leave entitlement, a cash plan health scheme and recognise the importance of a work-life balance.

We’ve made great strides since merger and are now ready to launch our culture change transformation programme, which will see positive change to the way we work and the services we deliver.
