The Housing Corporation is the national Government agency that funds new affordable housing and regulates housing associations in England.
We have about 500 staff based at nine offices throughout England (we do not work in Northern Ireland, Scotland or Wales).
Our investment is carried out by each of our regional offices.
Teams in our offices in Exeter, Leicester, London and Manchester lead on our regulation of housing associations.
The Housing Corporation also has a dedicated Centre for Research and Market Intelligence (CRMI). CRMI produces quality research, analysis, innovation and good practice. It aims to make the Housing Corporation world renowned for being the centre of expertise for housing policy and information.
We are currently helping to set up the Homes and Communities Agency and the Tenant Services Authority, both of which are due to start work on 1 December 2008.
The Homes and Communities Agency will bring together our investment strengths with the Academy for Sustainable Communities’ and English Partnerships’ experience in regeneration and Communities and Local Government’s delivery functions to create an organisation that can be even more ambitious in its efforts to help build better homes and stronger communities.
The Tenant Services Authority will take forward the regulatory functions of our work, ensuring that residents have a say in the work of their housing associations and have access to the best possible services.
More information about these two new organisations can be found in the leaflets below.
