In the past, local authorities provided nearly all social housing. However in recent years, housing association provision has increased greatly, and during the last ten years, housing associations have provided a quarter of all new social housing.
Saint John of God Housing Association aims to maximise its social mission of providing special needs accommodation to people with specific needs across the Saint John of God Services and to respond creatively and effectively to the huge demand for social housing amongst the people whom we serve. To achieve this objective, the Housing Association aims to ensure that its financial stewardship is of the highest standard. Surpluses are reinvested back into the company to further its social mission. This social mission is at the core of Saint John of God Housing Association’s work and it drives our ambition.
