Homes for everyone
At any given time there are around 100,000 people living in a
We believe in providing homes to people wherever there is a
need; whether that's in one of our homeless hostels in Suffolk, or
at our award-winning Stratford Halo
development in East London.
As one of the UK’s leading housing associations, we own or
manage around 33,000 homes across London and the east of England
and our stock portfolio includes a range of properties - from
temporary housing to rented homes,
sale, and supported housing.
Genesis is also part of the G15 group, which is made up of
London's largest housing associations. Between us, we are
responsible for providing homes for around one in ten people living
in the capital. We're working to address the chronic lack of
building new homes, too. Around 25 per cent of all new homes
that are under development in the capital are being built by G15
housing associations, including Genesis.
Building communities, not just houses
We believe it is our role to provide high quality services to help
our residents, and the people in those local communities, to build
better futures for themselves and their families.
We’re part of one of the most ambitious regeneration programmes
in Europe: a £450M project at Grahame
Park in Barnet. We’re also partners in a major long-term scheme
Down in Hackney, which will create new homes, community
facilities and schools in the area.
Separately, we have established our charitable foundation,
Genesis Community, which is working proactively to shape and
improve local neighbourhoods for our residents.
The amount of money we invest in supporting local initiatives is
growing year on year, and last year we donated £1.8M to a wide
range of projects including providing employment training and
support; volunteer training and work experience; youth programmes
and projects for older people; and support for vulnerable residents
with mental health issues and learning disabilities.
Genesis Housing Association Limited is a community benefit
society and a charity.
