We work in partnership with the Joseph Rowntree Housing Trust (JRHT), which provides housing and care services and demonstrates new approaches in these areas. JRF Trustees and staff are also the Trustees and staff of the JRHT.
The JRHT owns the freehold of nearly all the properties in New Earswick, York (including homes for rent and shared ownership, the shops, the communal facilities and the schools). The JRHT acts as the landlord for the rented property and supports the community and educational activities in the village.
It also carries out housing schemes in York and elsewhere in Yorkshire. These are of a developmental nature, demonstrating new forms of tenure, meeting special needs and exploring new features of design.
The JRHT is based at The Garth in New Earswick, York.
