We were established in 2000 as part of a Government programme to transfer housing from local authorities to social landlords.

We initially acquired 1,249 homes owned by the London Borough of Tower Hamlets and have since grown the number of properties we manage to over 3000 through a mixture of acquisition and development.

Our focus is on empowering residents, encouraging communities to thrive and delivering sustainable investment to existing and new housing stock in our borough.

All surpluses generated by THCH are invested either in the improvement of existing homes or in the provision of new homes for renting at genuinely affordable rent levels. Since our formation, THCH has regenerated all the estates it manages, brought all its properties up to the decent home standard and managed award-winning new developments.

THCH prides itself on its local roots and on working with diverse local communities.
