Housing associations in the Dudley borough

Dudley Council works in partnership with a number of housing associations, also known as Registered Providers, to help meet housing needs and to build sustainable communities across the borough.

Housing associations are independent and not for profit organisations that provide a range of affordable housing services which can include:

• general needs housing for rent

• housing for sale - including shared ownership

• sheltered housing - offering services to those who need some extra help to live independently

• supported housing - for people in need of care e.g. frail older people

• specialist hostels

They provide the majority of new affordable housing in the borough and are regulated by the Homes & Communities Agency (HCA).

Renting from housing associations

There are two ways you can apply for housing association rented accommodation. Either contact the housing association directly (some housing associations take direct applications) or apply to the council for housing.

The majority of vacant housing association properties are advertised on www.dudleyathome.org.uk and a proportion of housing association vacancies are let to people nominated by the council.

Priority for housing association properties is generally given to people in the most housing need.

For more information, including contact details on housing associations operating in the Dudley borough, please use the directory pages of this site.
