About Us


Eden Housing Association is a successful small independent Registered Provider of affordable homes with a rural focus.

We were established in 1997 following the voluntary transfer of housing stock from Eden District Council.

We now operate chiefly across North Cumbria owning and/or managing around 1,982 homes for affordable rent or sale, and act as Managing Agents for Mitre Housing Association, Allonby Almshouses, and Lyvennet Community Trust.

During the lifetime of our Corporate Plan 2018/21, ‘Owning Our Future’, we will work to achieve four key goals:

  1. Good Social Landlord – Provide good, safe, affordable accommodation and support.  Achieving tenancy sustainability, independence and choice within a secure future.
  2. Providing Value – Seeking to ensure income, assets and resources at our disposal are effectively utilised to achieve good outcomes.
  3. Rooted in Rural Eden & Cumbria – Respected housing expert in our rural heartland and neighbourhoods.  Championing ‘local’.
  4. Trusted Employer – Recognised as a good and fair employer, with high calibre leadership that attracts the best around and develops talent.

Our homes are generally located in areas of strong housing demand and relatively high market values.

Most of our homes caters for general family needs, with around 10% specifically designed for older people.

Tenants and residents are at the heart of everything we do, and a range of opportunities are offered and continually refreshed for local people to get involved with our work.

Eden Housing Association’s commitment to value for money is integral to delivery of our services and operations as a business and is woven through the delivery of all our aims and objectives.
