What is a Housing Association?
Housing Association's, also known as Registered Providers, are non-profit making bodies which receive money from central government to provide accommodation to those in need. This is done by either modernising sold sub-standard properties or building new. As the Association is funded by central government (via an agency called the Homes and Communities Agency), it is accountable to them for the money it spends, the building standards it achieves and the rent charged. The Association is run by an unpaid voluntary Board who decides the policies of the Association, and staff who put those policies into practice.
