About us

We’ve been providing affordable housing since the late 1890s. Our group is made up of two charities, Hyelm and The Ames House Trust, and together we provide low cost housing in London for 125 young people and priority groups. In addition we recently embarked on a major new development programme  to provide an additional 250 bed spaces by 2019.

As a social organisation we use commercial discipline and take measured risks to create environments where people want to live. All of our profits are re-invested into growing an even better organisation.

Yes, we place roofs over people’s heads – but that is only a part of what we do. We strive to make a positive difference to people’s lives, the communities in which we are a part of and the environments which are affected by us.

We’ve accomplished great things since we began but there is certainly more to come. We’ve got a clear vision for our future. We want to expand and increase our housing stock and the range of services that we offer.
