Our vision and values

Providing homes in London and the south-east

Notting Hill Genesis (NHG) works in the community, providing homes for lower-income households. This is our primary purpose, and everything else we do supports that aim.

We are one of the largest housing associations in London and the south-east, with more than 65,000 homes that house more than 170,000 residents combined. We were formed in April 2018 from Notting Hill Housing and Genesis Housing Association. 

More than half our homes are general needs properties, charged at social or affordable rent levels. In addition, we offer extra care and supported accommodation for older people and other vulnerable groups, as well as temporary housing, shared ownership, private market rent, student accommodation and commercial properties.

We are a new organisation, but our roots reach back to the 1960s when our legacy organisations were established by local people who shared a similar vision – to house west London’s working poor, providing them with a home from which to build themselves and their families a secure future.

Our growth over the decades has given tens of thousands of people a place to call home, and Notting Hill Genesis is committed to giving future generations the same opportunities. Combining a commercial outlook with a clear social purpose means we can reinvest our surpluses into building new homes and helping to tackle the housing crisis in London and the south-east.

We have more than 2,000 colleagues, most of whom work at the heart of our communities, building relationships with residents that go beyond bricks and mortar. We strive to be the best we can, and are committed to working with our residents to ensure that everyone has a safe, secure and good quality home, and access to high standard services delivered in the way that suits them best – whether that’s online or face-to-face.
