About Homes for Haringey

Our vision is to be an outstanding housing provider – one that our residents and partners are proud of. Formed in 2006, we’ve achieved a lot since we started including two positive Audit Commission inspections, renovation of over 6,000 homes, Investors in People Gold accreditation and being named the CIH’s ALMO of the Year in 2012. People are the key to our business and our work with the community has received national acclaim. In September 2013 we beat the BBC and the Royal Air Force to win a prestigious Race for Opportunity Future Workforce Award for our work with young people. We are passionate about our residents and put them at the heart of everything we do.
