Formed in 1986, Manningham Housing Association has delivered homes and services to communities in Bradford and Keighley for 35 years. With an annual turnover of £8.2 million and a staff of 42, we manage over 1,400 homes for more than 6,000 residents. Around 80% of MHA residents are of South Asian origin but the association proudly serves everyone in need.
We hold the highest achievable ratings from the Regulator of Social Housing. Alongside the Customer Service Excellence quality mark, MHA is the first housing association in the country to be accredited for our work in promoting equality, diversity and inclusion.
We have an inclusive environment where customers and colleagues work closely together. Our Customer Panel has been instrumental in decision-making and all services and operational policies are reviewed by them prior to Board approval.
MHA recognises that our role in serving local neighbourhoods is more than a landlord but also a place-shaper.
Our Community Investment Strategy has enabled us to secure more than £200,000 of external funding in recent months and develop partnerships with 18 voluntary organisations.
Projects we have supported include Fighting Fit, a health and wellbeing project, Let’s Get On, to allow people to enjoy arts and crafts, learn IT and improve communication skills, and BAME Ladies Smashing Boundaries to encourage female participation in sports.
MHA is very clear about our social purpose and we often speak out on issues that impact on our tenants and the wider communities, giving a voice to those who should be heard.
