What we do at Habinteg
Welcome to Habinteg Housing Association. We are a housing provider with a strong vision and ambitious aims. We want communities to include disabled people, offering places to live that meet their needs and provide the highest levels of independence, choice and control over their daily lives.
Our mission is to champion inclusion by providing and promoting accessible homes and neighbourhoods that welcome and include everyone. We do this in three ways: providing homes and services, demonstrating our expertise and influencing decisions.
On Wednesday 31 October the Regulator of Social Housing declared a regulatory upgrade for Habinteg Housing Association. The organisation now has a G1 rating for governance and a V1 rating for finance viability – the highest compliant rating available.
The vice president of the Town and Country Planning Association, the chair of the National Housing Federation and other members of the House of Lords recently debated the case for building more affordable housing across the UK.
Habinteg has created a toolkit designed to help local government leaders improve the availability and management of housing for disabled people. The document offers best practise approaches and practical tools to empower local authorities to consult, provide useful adaptations, assess housing stock and build accessibility into planning frameworks.
