Housingnet is the single-most comprehensive source
of data on over 2000 UK Housing Associations

Your Housing Group Overview

We have been collecting information on UK Housing Associations and the people who work in them since 1997 - for use in marketing, analysis, research and for people looking for social housing.

If you work with Housing organisations or are looking for a greater understanding of Housing Associations and Social Housing in the UK we can help. Our data can be grouped into the following categories:

  • People - The Directors and Senior Managers working for Housing Associations
  • Homes – What type of housing, where is it, and who looks after it?
  • Finance – Financial reports and analysis for the largest 400 Housing Associations
  • Statistics – Encompassing tenants, repairs, contractors and VFM satisfaction
  • News – What’s happening in the world of Housing and which Housing Associations are shouting the loudest?

The data we collect can be accessed on Housingnet in tables, charts, graphs and maps with the Export Panel making the data easier to organise and quick and simple to download.

"Housingnet is an invaluable tool for anyone working within the social housing sector. The data contained on the website is fantastic!" Richard Morgan - Dulux Decorator Centres

You can learn a lot from maps

MapClick to view map previews
We have been utilising Land Registry title data to map social homes across England and Wales, We’re pretty sure that Housingnet is the first organisation to do this – a world first! We use other open data sources such as house price data, brownfield sites, crime figures, socio-economic information and our own data to graphically enhance the maps for use in research, planning and sales. We’ve highlighted a few of the advantages below but we’re only scratching the surface of possibilities and would welcome any suggestions regarding how you would find it useful.

Comparision
There are some differences between actual housing stock and Land Registry titles for a number of predominantly historical reasons. Our registered clients can securely send us basic address details for their housing stock (house number, postcode and number of bedrooms) and we will map this data free of charge. Titles in need of an update are highlighted making Housingnet an even more valuable tool in your workplace without having to spend thousands of pounds developing your own software. We are happy to talk about adding any functionality at no extra cost for the benefit other Housing Association users.

Enhancing the map

Now we have your social homes plotted on a map we can add other data sets which allows you to overlay information highlighting such issues as which homes are in flood alert areas, brownfield sites, Broadband speeds and Green Belt boundaries. We regularly add new data sets to further enhance the map and always welcome feedback from our registered users regarding what other data they would find useful.

Crime mapping

By using regularly updated police crime data we’re able to examine incidences of crime in areas of high density housing showing either individual Housing Associations or combined organisations. We can also illustrate whether crime is increasing or decreasing in these targeted areas and look at the types of crime being committed which enable you to identify patterns and seek crime reduction solutions.

Exporting Data

All the data on Housingnet (with the exception of individual Land Registry titles) can be exported to spread sheets for analysis, marketing and importing in to your own CRM. Most of the data can be exported via the Export Panel and anything else can be exported by our programmers on request. We’re also happy to build bespoke lists based on our client's needs - free of charge. Below are examples of data sets that can be exported directly from Housingnet or forwarded to registered clients on request - free of charge.
