Circle Housing Circle 33

Circle Housing Circle 33 began life as a traditional housing association in 1968. In 2005 it merged with the Anglia Housing Group, and is now the largest partner subsidiary of Circle Housing (formerly Circle Anglia), owning 17,100 homes across London and in 48 Local Authority areas.

Circle Housing Circle 33 directly manages 8,300 general needs properties in London, provides maintenance services to 3,300 supported, commercial and leasehold properties, and has a high profile in London as a leading social housing provider and member of the G15 of Housing Associations, whilst enjoying the benefits of being part of a national housing group.

Circle Housing provides ‘central’ staff to deliver specialist services such as finance, human resources, training, development, strategic asset management, policy and performance, IT, business services, supported housing and non social rented property management.

Circle Housing Circle 33's owned homes for older people and supported housing (2,200) are locally managed via Service Level Agreement by Circle Housing’s Support Initiatives department, and likewise leasehold, shared ownership, key worker, temporary social housing and other non-social rented homes (1,200) are managed by Circle Housing’s commercial services department.

Following a stock rationalisation exercise in August 2007, 3,400 general needs homes outside London and in Tower Hamlets are managed on Circle Housing Circle 33’s behalf by other Registered Providers (RPs) within Circle Housing to facilitate more local service delivery and stronger neighbourhood management. At the same time and on the same basis, Circle Housing Circle 33 took responsibility for management of 568 Circle Housing South Anglia owned properties in Barking and Dagenham.
