About ISHA

About ISHA

Islington and Shoreditch Housing Association (ISHA) is a community and neighbourhood based housing association managing and developing quality affordable housing for people in North and East London, and building more homes in Hackney, Islington and Waltham Forest. It recently incorporated Lien Viet housing association and proudly continues to deliver culturally sensitive services to the Vietnamese and South Asian communities in the place it operates.

ISHA consists of Islington and Shoreditch Housing Association, with Urban Style Ltd as a subsidiary. 

Islington and Shoreditch Housing Association is smaller and more local than many other housing associations operating in London. The roots of ISHA go back to 1933 and we have grown rapidly in recent years and now have over 2,200 homes.  

We want ISHA to stand out from the crowd as a special housing association, and we are making radical changes to meet our 2020 improvement ambitions in 4 key areas:

  • First class service delivery
  • Customer service
  • Communications
  • Meeting future housing needs

At the same time, maintaining our financial viability is the first priority which underpins our four core objectives. The foundations of these are through our robust business planning and risk and control framework that monitor the achievement of our ambitions:

  • To be a great landlord
  • To value our customers and meet their housing needs
  • To provide good quality and affordable homes
  • Speaking up for housing

We are regulated by the Regulator of Social Housing. We work in close co-operation with our local authorities, Homes England, and other local Housing Associations, including Black and Minority Ethnic, special needs Housing Associations and co-operatives. Investment in development is provided by the Greater London Authority. ISHA leads the North River Alliance (NRA), which is a consortium of north and east London community based housing associations.

ISHA is a registered society under the Co-operative and Community Benefits Society Act 2014.
