Unity Housing Association serving BME communities since 1987
Unity began life in the Chapeltown area of Leeds working largely with the Black Caribbean community and then spread into the adjoining area of Harehills which has a large mixed Asian community.
Unity quickly broadened its focus to tackle the full range of housing needs of the BME communities across the city as a whole, with the aim of extending housing choice and improving integration. By 1997, when a ten-year review was undertaken, Unity was providing nearly 700 newly built or refurbished homes in some of the most deprived areas of the city.
In 2000 the association established a subsidiary company, now called Unity Enterprise. We are driven by offering both housing and business tenants a responsive and high level of customer service.
By 2021 Unity has added over 1300 affordable homes to local housing stock. We continue to be involved in regeneration and encourage enterprise to fuel the local economy. Our tenants play a growing role in everything we do. At Unity Housing Association it’s very much business as usual. We’re simply getting on with the job, as we look forward to the future – whilst celebrating our past.
Today, Unity is a thriving organisation totally committed to building strong sustainable communities through the delivery of the very best housing, social and employment opportunities.
The Unity Employment Services Team assist clients with finding employment, training and volunteering opportunities.
