Coastline Housing is an independent Cornish charitable housing association owning and managing 5,000 homes.
The housing crisis means the challenge we face is enormous. Only 1 in 10 of homes in Cornwall is an affordable home. Private rents and house prices are unaffordable to most, trapping families in poverty.
Coastline exists to help solve this crisis. To provide housing for those in need, to help improve the neighbourhoods that people live in, and to provide services that improve the quality of our customers’ lives.
In 2021 Coastline was named the eighth fastest growing association in terms of building new affordable properties. This is the fourth year in a row that Coastline appeared in the top 10 fastest growing housing associations list published by Inside Housing. Across the last 12 months we invested £34.5 million, including almost £3 million of grant from local and central government, in developing homes for Cornwall.
We have committed, with our partners, to building no less than 1,200 new affordable homes between 2021 and 2025 to help families and individuals struggling with housing.
Coastline is more than just a landlord. Our footprint extends beyond our homes and into local communities. We know we have a role to play in tackling stigma, deprivation and enabling life-enhancing opportunities for customers, ultimately improving quality of life, health and wellbeing.
We support some of the most vulnerable people in Cornwall. Our purpose-built facility for Coastline’s Homeless Service in Pool transforms lives by providing everything they need on one site, including overnight crisis accommodation, a doctors’ surgery, and a community hub with space for partner organisations.
Coastline also offers work placements, employability programmes, a volunteer programme, neighbourhood and environment improvement projects, and much more. We work collaboratively with other organisations to this end including Building Futures, Fedcap and the local Jobcentres.
We are a member of PlaceShapers, a national alliance of more than 100 community-focused housing associations. Its members own and manage over 900,000 homes and provide services to more than two million people.
