Ongo Homes provides 10,000 homes for people on social or affordable rent. Their homes are mainly based in North Lincolnshire although they have some available in neighbouring areas, such as Lincolnshire and South Yorkshire.
Along with homes to rent, they also provide a wide range of property management and maintenance services, plus support services to help their tenants live successfully and independently within their home.
They are a not-for-profit organisation, which means any income they receive, which is mainly rent, is reinvested back into providing homes and community services.
They are also a charitable community benefit society which means they carry out activities which support charitable objectives. These are:
- Providing and managing housing and providing assistance to help house people and associated facilities, amenities and services for poor people or for the relief of aged, disabled or chronically sick people
- Providing recreation or other leisure facilities in the interest of social welfare with the object of improving the conditions of life for the residents of the area they own or manage housing and neighbouring areas
- Promotion of urban or rural regeneration in areas of social and economic deprivation
