Manningham Housing Association (MHA) has a proud track record of delivering homes and services to the communities in Bradford and Keighley. MHA came into existence in 1986, following a piece of research undertaken into the housing needs of Black and Asian Communities in Bradford by the Bangladeshi Youth Organisation.
This research proved that the needs of the South Asian Community were not being addressed and the government and the council supported MHA growing from an organisation with two properties to one that now has over 1400 homes and houses over 6000 residents.
The MHA Board have decided that our core mission of ensuring that the housing needs of the South Asian community, particularly in the Bradford area, are met and is still an important and justifiable aim as the needs of the community are as great as ever.
Our new development activity was paused in 2017, whilst the organisation created a further capacity to provide more much-needed homes. Following this short break, our Board has approved our new Growth Strategy, which means that we will again be able to provide more homes.
We aim to provide good quality affordable homes and services for those in the greatest need in the Bradford district, and over two-thirds of our homes have three bedrooms or more. Over 80% of our residents are of Bangladeshi or Pakistani origin, but we cater to all those in housing need.
Our customer satisfaction levels are extremely high and are consistently in the 90% plus bracket – we sum up our ambition in this area as providing a “hassle-free” housing service to our customers.
With an annual turnover of £8.5 million and a staff base of 37 colleagues, we are a small organisation. However, MHA has always “punched above its weight” in terms of achievements.
