Work with us

We offer a range of partnership opportunities to external organisations who want to work with housing associations.

Our partnerships offer commercial, public and third sector organisations a route to access the social housing sector and support the work of our member housing associations, who provide more than two and a half million homes for six million people.

The products and services offered by our Preferred and Sector Suppliers form an integral part of our member offer. The income generated from our commercial relationships enables the Federation to provide effective services for our members.

Tier 1: Preferred Supplier

This is a bespoke multi-year partnership with commercial organisations, created to deliver preferential terms and conditions for products and services for our members.

The product or service offered needs to meet housing association members’ requirements, while delivering exceptional customer service and value. Preferred Suppliers can connect with specific member groups through our digital channels.

For more details about becoming a preferred supplier, please email Louise Venton.

Tier 2: Sponsorship

We organise around 20 paid for events a year, each offering a variety of different opportunities for our members to be inspired and challenged by housing influencers.

Events are an integral part of our engagement with our members. We run a mixture of conferences, exhibitions and awards, as well as a large number of free or low cost member engagement events around the country.

Over 10,000 members and other housing stakeholders attend our events each year. Event sponsorship gives commercial organisations an unparalleled platform to influence and network with event delegates.
