United against Coronavirus

Even though we’ve had to adapt our ways of working, our focus remains the same – to keep our residents safe and supported in their homes, to keep vital services running, and to help our communities to respond.

For this reason, we welcome the response of the National Housing Federation (NHF) to the coronavirus outbreak. Along with housing associations around the country, we stand with the NHF in our joint commitment to:

1. Keep people secure at home
No one will be evicted from our homes as a result of financial hardship caused by coronavirus.

2. Help people to get the support they need
We’re helping residents to access benefits and other support to alleviate financial hardship.

3. Act compassionately and quickly where people are struggling
We’re working with residents to understand how we can help them.

New Affordable Homes in Wisborough Green

We have been working in partnership with Wisborough Green Parish Council to address the need for high quality, truly affordable homes for local people in the village, and this summer we took handover of 10 properties at Great Meadow in Wisborough Green, West Sussex.  The high quality affordable homes are a mix of one, two and three bed houses with seven for rent and three for shared ownership and were built to a very high standard by family owned building firm, Jones Homes.  In mid August our Housing team personally welcomed each new excited resident with a welcome hamper along with the key to their new home. The majority of which had a local connection to the area, where house prices are high and local people are unable to afford to live there.  

We still have one sharedownership properties availble, which are ideal for first time buyers or downsizers.  Click here for more information!
