Housing Associations provide rented housing which is similar to local councils – often to people on a low income or who need special types of housing.
Some of them provide homes for particular groups of people; for example sheltered housing. They do not make a profit and many of them are charitable organisations. They are often called Registered Social Landlords (RSLs) or Registered Providers (RPs).
Applying for a home with a housing association
You can apply for a home with a housing association by contacting them directly. You can also apply to some of them by registering with Leeds Homes. A list of housing associations in Leeds is available in the documents section on this page.
