Improving quality of life

We are a small housing association, set up in 1933 by Margaret Hill, and now managing 394 homes, mostly within the Hornsey and Crouch End areas of North London. Since that time, it has grown to become a specialist provider of a range of housing, support options for over 400 older people and people with other support needs.

We specialise in meeting the housing needs of older people – over 45 years - both in our sheltered schemes and in our converted street properties. We are focussed on improving the quality of life for our tenants and older neighbours

Our aims

Hornsey Housing Trust provides affordable housing and support services in the London Borough of Haringey that enable older people to live full, independent lives in the community of their choice.

Our aim is to meet the current and future needs of older and vulnerable people in Haringey by providing quality homes, excellent, value for money services and placing tenants at the centre of everything we do.

We provide both housing and some level of support to a wide variety of people of different ages and from different cultures and ethnic backgrounds, mostly in the Hornsey, Crouch End, Tottenham and Highgate areas of the borough.

Hornsey Housing Trust

The Trust was established to support old age pensioners and we have retained our specialism of housing older people: the current minimum age at which someone can be allocated a Hornsey Housing Trust home is 45 and the average age of a Trust tenant is 78.

A third of our housing stock consists of sheltered housing, offering scheme-based accommodation with on-site support staff and additional services to our more vulnerable tenants.
