East London Housing Partnership
The East London Housing Partnership is an alliance between the eight East London local authorities and East London registered social landlords.
Its purpose is to address housing need and increase the quality and availability of housing in East London.
The East London Housing Partnership (ELHP) was set up in 2003 in recognition of high housing demand and limited supply, and the difficulty associated with resolving these problems within authority boundaries.
It is one of 5 housing sub-regional Partnerships in London (the others being the North, West, South-East, and South-West Housing Partnerships).
Since it was established, the ELHP has delivered a variety of projects depending on Partners’ priorities and available funding.
The central aim of these has been to address housing need at a sub-regional level. The Partnership’s projects have included:
- Forming a sub-regional pool of homes to allow better mobility of social housing tenants across the region
- Addressing under-occupation and over-crowding
- Bringing empty homes back into use
- Improving the condition of homes
- Supporting survivors of domestic abuse
- Preventing and minimising homelessness and rough-sleeping through provision of accommodation, support and advice. The Partnership has particularly focussed its work on single people deemed to not be in priority need for local authority assistance.
