Gateway Housing Association
Gateway is a community based housing association. We predominantly operate in the London Borough of Tower Hamlets but we have a small stock holding in Hackney and Newham. The majority of our 2,800 homes are social rent.
We are uniquely the largest provider of sheltered housing in Tower Hamlets and were the first registered provider of older persons shared ownership in the borough. We also have two registered care homes for older persons and have the third largest stock-holding of social housing within the borough. We are particularly proud of our new build properties for leasehold, shared ownership and direct sale which is low density and high quality.
We have many positive attributes meeting our social purpose and vision of 'supporting local communities to thrive'. This includes the investment we make each year into community projects for our resident groups and young people through the Community Chest grant fund and Environmental Improvements Grant.
'Gateway Homeworks' – our very own in-house repairs service was set up in 2015, offering residents a first-time quality fix. Our dedicated resident involvement team are leading the way in resident scrutiny and in 2014 we opened our exciting new digital training suite, 'The Zone'. This will help to successfully deliver STEP (Support to Employment Programme) for local people, as well as being a focus for the provision of financial inclusion to support our residents impacted by Welfare Reform through our in-house Welfare Advisor and partnership agencies.
