Our story

Homes for everyone
At any given time there are around 100,000 people living in a Genesis home.

We believe in providing homes to people wherever there is a need: whether that's in one of our homeless services in Suffolk, or at our award-winning Stratford Halo development in East London. More than that, we believe we have a role in creating and sustaining thriving communities, working with our customers to ensure they have a safe and secure place to call home and access to high quality services that suit their diverse needs.

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,homes for 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 housing by 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.
