ⓘ Leeds Federated Housing Association

Leeds Federated Housing Association was formed in 1974 by a number of smaller associations coming together to form a federation, for the benefit of the community. The idea was that by working together they could achieve more than as separate organisations. That philosophy has prevailed throughout Leeds Feds history, with partnerships and joint working arrangements being a common feature of its work over the years.

The Association grew rapidly in the 1970s and early 1980-ies with a large number of pre-1919 stock. Jim Coulter created the Association and was Director for 12 years before going on to become head of the National housing Federation. New build development undertaken through Leeds partnership homes in the early 1990s, leading to this day where his 4.300 homes are roughly half pre-1919 stock and half new build stock

Most of the houses in Leeds, but in the 1990s, they started developing outside Leeds and now have around 400 homes in Harrogate and 100 in Wakefield.

The goal of the Association is to provide benefit to the entire community through the provision of housing and related services. Most of its services to the rental housing people want to live in, cheaper than they can be rented from the private sector. However, through support in housing, and services are also available specifically designed to help people with special needs, such as the elderly, people with disabilities, physical or mental, refugees and women victims of domestic violence. Around 550 homes are used for supported housing, to help people as possible to live independently within the local community.

The Association takes part in regeneration in the communities where it has a stock, in order to help change society to become a place where people want to live.

Leeds fed is located at Arthington house, 30 Westfield road, Leeds, лс3 increased 1DE.

The current Executive Director, Matthew Walker, and Chairman from 2002 to 2009 was Martin Dean who has replaced on this post of Eric Bowen.
