The Northern Housing Consortium represents the views of housing organisations in the North of England. We are a membership organisation made up of local authorities, ALMOs and associations that provide social housing for tenants. Not only does the NHC bring its members together to share ideas, representing their interests and ensure they are heard at a regional and national government level.
Outside the North
The NHC is delighted to have members based outside of the North as, while we have a Northern approach to policy and public affairs, we know practical approaches to realising efficiencies and demonstrating value for money is not geographically restricted.
