Our Story

Our tenants vote yesOur uniqueness centres on the fact that we were the first Housing Association based on the Community Gateway Model.

On the 28th November 2005 the "yes" vote signified the beginning of Community Gateway Association as a large-scale voluntary transfer organisation created by the transfer of Preston City Council’s 6,500 properties.

The Gateway model is about putting tenants and residents at the heart of the organisation. This means community empowerment is evident throughout our business from our rules through to our day to day activities.
