Who we are

Creating places that people call home

One Housing is a trading name of The Riverside Group Limited (Riverside), following the merger and subsequent legal integration of One Housing Group Ltd with Riverside.

We currently operate as a distinct part of Riverside, offering a wide range of housing options, including homes for social rent in partnership with local authorities, as well as homes for affordable rent, shared ownership, private rent, and private sale. We own and manage over 17,000 homes in London and the Southeast serving over 35,000 residents. It is our responsibility to ensure that our residents are safe and secure in their homes.

We are going through a major transition programme with Riverside which will result in the full integration of all our services over the coming years. However, until then, we will continue to operate under the brand “One Housing, part of Riverside”.

Supporting people to live well

Providing care and support to those who are vulnerable is an important part of what we do. Every year we support over 2,000 people with the care and support they need. We work with homeless people; those with complex needs; people with mental health problems; older people and also work in partnership with the NHS and local authorities.

Building homes and communities

Our focus is on the development of homes that people can afford. Our development programme serves that section of the population which is not well provided for and where there is significant need. Wherever possible, we will prioritise the building of genuinely affordable homes. We also have a number of estates where we are working with residents for possible renewal.

One Housing Foundation

One Housing Foundation is our charity. Through our charity, we provide positive social and community activity that supports people to live well and aspire to a better future. As a housing association with a strong social purpose, these activities are not the only thing we do. Helping people when they most need it and adding value in our communities is at the centre of everything we do.


We are a member of a group of London’s largest housing associations. We have the shared purpose to help people in housing need, build more homes and create communities where people can realise their potential. The G15 has launched ‘Our Offer to London’. It sets out how we can collaborate with councils and communities in London to build more genuinely affordable homes.

Homes for Cathy

We are a member of Homes for Cathy which is a national group of housing associations working together to end homelessness. Homes for Cathy are committed to lobbying for solutions that make a difference to homeless people and people at risk of homelessness.

The wider Riverside Group

Riverside is a group of complementary businesses driven by a clear social purpose, with a charitable housing association at its core.

Established over 90 years ago, we have grown to become a major provider of affordable housing, care and support services in England and Scotland, with over 75,000 homes in management. Operating at scale across over 175 local authorities, our vision is to transform the lives of the 140,000+ people we house and revitalise the neighbourhoods in which they live.
