Masonic Housing Association has launched its new website at: http://masonichousing.co.uk/
Masonic Housing Association was founded in 1975 and specialises in the provision of sheltered housing for older people. It is registered as a Charitable Housing Association under the Co-operative and Community Benefit Societies Act 2014 (registration number 21444R) and also with the Homes & Communities Agency (registration number L0673).
Masonic Housing Association does not restrict occupancy only to those qualified through Freemasonry; half of the tenancy allocations are to nominees of the Local Authority in which the scheme is located. Freemasonry is demonstrably reaching out into the community to provide benefits to those who have no connection with Freemasonry.
The day-to-day management of their 5 sheltered housing schemes rests with voluntary House Committees with members appointed by the Provincial Grand Master of the Masonic Province in which each scheme is located. These Committees provide support to the Scheme Managers, maintain a waiting list for accommodation, and are responsible for operational budgets. They also keep in contact with their tenants through regular meetings and social events.
In Warwickshire we are fortunate to have one of the sheltered housing schemes in our area, Reading Court, which has 45 one bedroom flats – find out more on the new website by clicking this link.
