About Strides

At Strides we work with people and communities to progress.

Today’s system is fragmented, inconsistent and lacking – there is a support gap which is preventing individuals and communities from making the strides forward that are clearly possible.

Our primary goal is to bridge this gap. As a community housing association that strongly believes in maximising the social value of buildings for the benefit of people and communities, we’re working to create places of safety and quality where people can come to find their way through life and society.

We’re striving to amplify the scale and impact of our work through deeply connected partnerships where working together means we can improve life outcomes for people and communities.

We strive to be


No-one is excluded from our world, we welcome individuality and difference


We’re relatable, relevant and realistic, tackling todays issues head-on with determination and purpose 


By changing individual worlds, we strive to change the whole world


We’re purposefully woven into local communities and society because it’s together that we create choices and social value

We believe in


We listen to and support people through mutually positive relationships


We believe everyone has the right to a richer and fuller life within society 


We see things through to the end to make the difference


We’re deeply collaborative where working together offers better outcomes for individuals and communities


Our community hub is a space where individuals, groups, organisations and those with a vision for strong community links can come together and shape space, learning from each other and sharing resources.

We provide bespoke accommodation alongside professional coaching for people in-work who are experiencing homelessness.

We provide low-cost accommodation for key workers and working veterans.

We partner with other organisations who deliver support services from our buildings, including a pan-London youth hub providing emergency accommodation, and a domestic abuse refuge for the LGBTIQ+ community.
