Women’s Pioneer Housing has a rich history of housing women. In 2020, we celebrated 100 years of providing homes for women in London. The need for an organisation that understands and champions women’s housing needs has never been more relevant. Today, the need for safe, secure, affordable housing is as great as ever and we remain committed to making a positive difference to women’s lives by providing high quality homes and services. Gender inequality also remains a huge issue. We aim to influence others to understand the link between providing women with good quality, affordable accommodation and the wider fight for women’s equality.
Our vision is to make a positive difference to women’s lives. Our mission is to provide homes and services which offer a springboard to independent women to achieve their potential. Our values, co-created with our staff and residents, reflect both our history and our future: Positivity, Integrity, One team, Never forgetting the customer, Equality, Empowerment and Responsibility
