Who we are

Keniston-HA-photos-17.02.16-67

We are a housing association providing low cost rented accommodation to people who find it difficult to compete in the private rented sector. We charge rents at below market rates. Most people who live in our properties have been referred to us through choice based lettings schemes run by local councils.

We set high standards for the service we deliver and are happiest when tenants say they are satisfied with what we do.

Our key aims are to:

  • Maintain very high resident satisfaction
  • Provide more homes for people who need them
  • Support communities and enable opportunities for individuals

Keniston is overseen by a governing Board. The members give their time without pay.

We are regulated by the Homes and Communities Agency, the regulator for social housing; our registration number is L1965. Although we call ourselves a housing association the regulator refers to us as a registered provider. In legal terms we are registered with the Financial Conduct Authority as a Co-operative and Community Benefit Society, number 19475R.  We are also a member of the National Housing Federation which represents the social housing sector.
