Women’s Pioneer Housing is the parent company in a group that also includes our wholly-owned subsidiary Women’s Pioneer Homes which we founded in 2014.
Women’s Pioneer Housing is a registered provider of social housing for single women.
Founded in 1920, we are committed to continuing our work to provide good quality, attractive homes for single women in west London let at target rents. Key to this is investment in our stock through our more than decent programme which delivers a high standard makeover to vacant properties including structural works.
Women’s Pioneer Homes is a registered commercial company incorporated in December 2014. It was established to build new homes to let on flexible rented tenures and to support the activities of the parent organisation. It also manages a small portfolio of homes currently let at market rent to subsidise the cost of development.
Women’s Pioneer Housing is registered with the Homes and Communities Agency as a social housing provider and is registered as an exempt charity under the Co-operative and Community Benefit Societies Act.
Our wholly-owned subsidiary, Women’s Pioneer Homes, was established in 2014, allowing us to diversify the housing products we offer against a background of rent cuts for social housing. Some flats in high value areas are now let at market rents and all new homes that we create are owned by the subsidiary, giving us flexibility over rents charged now and in the future. Letting at market rents helps repay development loans, with the aspiration that these flats can be let in the future at much lower rents to house women on moderate earnings.
