Cirencester Housing Association

What We Do

Cirencester Housing owns and manages homes, and works with local communities, developers and partners to develop new affordable housing. Our customer service is based on having personable relationships with our tenants, supporting them in their tenancy and providing safe and cost-effective housing. Our approach is to be kind, respectful and responsive thus demonstrating our personal service.

Cirencester Housing is committed to increasing the number of affordable homes we offer over the next 10 years, especially in rural and village communities.


We Are Growing

Cirencester Housing has increased its stock by 20% over the last five years by utilising spare land and working with developers in villages within the Cotswold District.

We are presently working with the local parish councils of North Cerney and Bagendon to help them to bring 12 affordable homes to meet their local housing need.

In addition, we are expanding into providing property services to other like-minded local small landlords who offer homes at below market rent.


Collaborating & Our Partners

As a small housing association, we know that the best way to make a difference and achieve more is by working with others. As such we have a high emphasis on collaboration and a partnering approach to our business.

Rural Development

We have partnered with English Rural, specialist provider of community-led, affordable rural homes and one of the leading national advocates on affordable rural housing issues. Together we will endeavour to build affordable homes in rural villages helping to build and keep communities together.

Cirencester Housing is a long-standing member of the Gloucestershire Rural Housing Partnership. With the Local Authorities of Gloucestershire and other local housing associations, we collaborate with local communities to identify unmet housing need in rural areas, promote opportunities for rural housing development, and share innovation and best practice.  Contact us if you would like to find out more.

As a member of the Rural Housing Alliance (RHA), we pledge to work with and for rural communities by working in partnership with the Rural Services Network and National Housing Federation to develop and manage homes in rural areas across England.

Other Partnering Relationships

Cirencester Housing has entered into a partnering arrangement with our repairs and maintenance contractor, NKS Contracts. By doing so, we provide assurance of quality and continuity of service while delivering value for money to our tenants.

I feel much less isolated with Cirencester Housing than where I was before.

I lost my partner and home and didn’t know what to do until I found Cirencester Housing’.

A Housing Association like Cirencester Housing offers security. I kept going lower and lower and was constantly being ripped
off. Security is a very good psychological thing.
