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 and Lyvennet Community Trust.

Eden Housing Association has a clear Strategy created with our tenants, stakeholders, colleagues and partners. It runs from 2024 to 2028 and responds directly to our tenant’s’ needs:

GOOD QUALITY, SAFE AND AFFORDABLE HOMES – The priority for our tenants is to invest in homes by improving the repairs service, the energy efficiency of homes and maintain attractive homes in places where tenants want to live.

TENANT VOICE AND INFLUENCE – We will actively listen and support our tenants, improving services together.

HIGH PERFORMING AND RESILIENT ORGANISATION – To deliver our ambitions to tenants and your homes we need a modern and resilient high performing business.

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. By listening and investing in our tenants needs we maximise our value to tenants and the local community.
