Join us!

We’re PlaceShapers, the national network of community-based social housing providers.

All members sign up to five principles:

1. Our residents and customers are at the heart of what we do and have genuine impact on our organisations.
2. We listen and provide more than just landlord services because we care about people and places.
3. We build homes that respond to the needs of the communities we serve.
4. Working collaboratively and actively with our local authorities and other local partners enables us to improve and shape places at both a strategic and operational level.
5. We are run by members, for members and are committed to a diverse, values-driven housing association sector.
