Our role as a PlaceShaper

At Ongo, we do loads of stuff to help people not just in their homes, but in their communities too, in fact we like to think we are doing our bit to shape the places in which we work.

That is why we happily signed up to become a member of PlaceShapers - a group of like-minded housing organisations.

Together we have a pretty strong voice, standing up for the things that make people and places thrive.

As a member of PlaceShapers we are one of more than 100 housing organisations, who together provide 725,000 homes up and down the country.

We've all signed up to the same principles:

  • We put our residents and customers at the centre of what we do and ensure they have real influence on our organisations.
  • We provide more than just landlord services because we care about the people and places where we work.
  • We recognise the importance of a local focus and work actively with our local authorities and other local partners to improve and shape places at both a strategic and operational level.
  • We believe there is strength and benefit to residents and stakeholders in maintaining a strong, independent, diverse, values-driven housing association sector.
