About Network Homes

We are a charitable housing association driven by social objectives to make a positive impact on the places we work in, for the long-term. We have an ambition to build a thousand new homes a year, deliver first class customer service and strengthen our residents trust in us as a landlord.

We own and manage over 20,000 homes across London, Hertfordshire and the South East and are a sector leader amongst the G15 group of London’s largest housing associations. We fundamentally believe in the importance to everyone of a safe, secure, and decent home.

We foster a positive working culture because we’re passionate about our people.  Recognised as a Sunday Times 100 Employer in 2019 we have outstanding levels of engagement amongst our people. And we’re focused on becoming even smarter, better, faster, and stronger with our digital transformation programme as we look forward to our recent move into our brand new, modern, stylish offices which we moved into in July 2020.

Network Homes is firmly committed to making sure that our organisation and the communities in which we work are safe places for people to be who they are and live the way they choose. The commitment was recognised at the Housing Heroes awards 2019 where our Equality and Diversity Engagement Group picked up a key award and is demonstrated by us being founding partners for Leadership 2025, the initiative to increase the ethnic diversity of housing’s leadership, and Pledge Pioneers for House Proud, a scheme designed to ensure Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans and Queer residents can enjoy their homes without fear of discrimination.
