Leeds Jewish Housing Association (LJHA) has a rich history that stretches back to when the organisation was founded on 22nd October 1953 and is an established Jewish led community based Registered Social Housing Provider committed to providing and maintaining sustainable community housing, focusing predominantly on the needs of the local Jewish community.
We have almost 550 properties in our portfolio and provide a mixture of homes for single people, families, older people and shared ownership. Our properties are located around the LS17 postcode of Leeds within the areas of Moortown and Alwoodley.
We developed a timeline of our properties and history, pictured below. This timeline is displayed in our reception in Stonegate Way, so visitors can see the rich history of development LJHA has had over the past years. We have so much history to show off that the timeline displayed in our reception is over 14 foot long!
You can learn more about how we’re celebrating 70 years here.
We are registered under the Industrial and Provident Societies Act, 1965 and are regulated by the Regulator of Social Housing. We are members of the National Housing Federation.
We are proud of our Vision and follow our set Values – those are:
We try to apply these values to everything we do and supporting all tenants equally, from first time applicants to long-standing tenants. We feel that constructive, honest and supportive relationships are the bedrock to a successful community and as such try and foster these relationships at all times.
Our vision has remained the same for almost 70 years – to provide and maintain sustainable community housing that is primarily for the Jewish community, however we do not restrict our housing to the Jewish community exclusively; if you are in housing need please come and see us.
Working in Partnership
We are committed to working in partnership with Leeds City Council, Leeds Homes, and other community and voluntary partners, both within the Jewish community and across Leeds. As part of our belief in meaningful resident engagement, we work in partnership with our residents to independently and collaboratively scrutinise and hold us to account for the decisions that affect the quality of the homes and services we provide.
We also aim to ensure that we are well-known by promoting the work of LJHA to our partners.
