About Us

Formed in 1994, Swan Housing Association (Swan) exists to fulfil its social purpose to enable as many people as possible to have ‘somewhere to feel at home’. Swan provides high-quality affordable homes to rent and buy, working in partnership with our local authority, Borough and GLA and Homes England Partners and other stakeholders.

We operate in East London and Essex, locally managing over 11,500 homes, including social rent, shared ownership, NHS accommodation and supported schemes.   We have always been a regenerating landlord and currently have a secured development pipeline of over 8,000 homes to be delivered using both traditional and offsite construction by our in-house developer Swan Commercial Services. We have our own offsite modular housing factory which we are using to build high quality modular homes including fully customisable homes. Every penny we make is reinvested in homes and services for our residents.

About so much more than just bricks and mortar, we transform the communities in which we work by investing in these communities and our residents. As well as high quality public realm, community spaces and high-quality homes, we deliver life changing services such as training and employment support and community engagement and activities, on top of a quality property management service (under our subsidiary, Hera). It is this holistic approach that has earned us a reputation as one of the UK’s leading regeneration housing associations as well as a host of prestigious awards.

We are proud to provide care and support services including domiciliary care and support services, sheltered housing for older people and those with special needs, as well our inspirational accredited foyers that accommodate young people including young parents and their children. We also own a number of women's refuges and provide a range of specialist services to support the NHS. workers.
