About us

Housing Europe is the European Federation of Public, Cooperative and Social Housing

Established in 1988, it is a network of 45 national and regional federations which together gather about 43.000 public, social and cooperative housing providers in 24 countries. Altogether they manage over 26 million homes, about 11% of existing dwellings in the EU.

Social, public and co-operative 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 everyone is enabled to reach their full potential.

Therefore, they do not just provide affordable homes but a number of other services such as:

  • Domiciliary care and support services for residents with specific needs
  • Additional services for tenants (kindergartens,  community centres, employment and training services, financial advice)
  • Neighbourhood services
  • Management of other types of ‘sheltered’ accommodation
  • Urban development and urban regeneration
