Established in 1988, CECODHAS Housing Europe is the European Federation of Public, Cooperative & Social Housing - a network of 45 national and regional federations which together gather about 41 400 public, voluntary and cooperative housing providers in 19 countries. Altogether they manage over 27 million homes, about 12% of existing dwellings in the EU.
We are funded by membership fees.
The CECODHAS HOUSING EUROPE secretariat, based in Brussels since 2000, is responsible for the coordination of the day-to-day running of the organisation. It is structured in three main departments; Policy Formulation and Lobbying, Communication and Research.
We, not-for-profit, public and co-operatives housing providers, have a vision of a Europe which provides access to decent and affordable housing for all in communities which are socially, economically and environmentally sustainable and where all are enabled to reach their full potential.
CECODHAS HOUSING EUROPE is organized in three sections and three working groups. Chairmen of the sections and working groups, together with CECODHAS HOUSING EUROPE President form the management board.
