Who we are
United Welsh is a registered social landlord operating under charitable rules. We offer a range of homes including family houses, apartments and bungalows, and manage over 5,000 homes across 11 local authorities in South Wales.
Building quality homes people can afford to rent or buy
In South Wales, we let our homes using a points-based system called Select-a-Home (hyperlink), which we designed to give people a clear choice over where they want to live while giving priority to those in urgent need. In all the other Local Authority areas we operate in there are common waiting lists – meaning people need only fill in one housing application for all the Social and Council homes in that area.
Growing with people
Over 55? Looking for a safe, secure place to live? Our Thrive team can help! We specialise in meeting the unique lifestyle needs of the over 55s and are committed to developing services as people’s needs change. We also provide 'extra care' housing for a more diverse age group meeting varied holistic needs - this is known as 'Housing with Care'.
Delivering excellence in housing and support services
We work hard to support the most vulnerable people in our society – in fact, we have more supported housing beds than any other housing association in Wales. We also work with more than 30 different providers including The Wallich, Gwalia and Gofal to make sure people get the help and support they need. The groups we work with include:
- those with learning disabilities
- individuals of all ages who are homeless
- young people leaving care
- women fleeing domestic abuse
- those recovering from substance-misuse;
- people with mental health problems
We also provide support ourselves at our PREP projects.
Investing in homes and communities
We don’t just build homes, we build communities.
Our Community Investment team immerse themselves in the neighbourhoods where we work. What’s more, our Estate Improvements programme identifies outdoor areas in need of investment, and we work with the local community to help deliver these changes. We also invest in our homes with a planned maintenance programme and a high quality, responsive repairs service.
Our specialist team takes a proactive approach to managing anti-social behaviour issues where they occur.
