What are Housing Associations?
Housing associations provide affordable housing in many areas of Doncaster. They build new homes and improve existing properties, mainly for rent.
Housing associations are run as not-for-profit businesses. This means that any surplus is ploughed back into the organisation to maintain existing homes and to help finance new ones.
At present there are various housing associations providing accommodation in Doncaster and these are provided as links on this web page.
How do I apply for a Housing Association property?
The Housing Register is administered by St. Leger Homes of Doncaster and advertised under the Doncaster HomeChoice scheme.
Please view the A Guide to Housing Associations booklet on the Doncaster Homechoice website for more information.
