Coastline Housing is an independent Cornish charitable housing association owning and managing 5,000 homes.
The housing crisis means the challenge Coastline faces is enormous. Only 1 in 10 of homes in Cornwall is an affordable home. Private rents and house prices are unaffordable to most, trapping families in poverty.
Coastline exists to help solve this crisis. To provide housing for those in need, to help improve the neighbourhoods that people live in, and to provide services that improve the quality of its customers’ lives.
Coastline is more than just a landlord. Its footprint extends beyond homes and into local communities.
The housing charity supports some of the most vulnerable people in Cornwall. A purpose-built facility for Coastline’s Homeless Service in Pool transforms lives by providing everything homeless people need on one site, including overnight crisis accommodation, a doctors’ surgery, and a community hub with space for partner organisations.
Coastline also offers work placements, employability programmes, a volunteer programme, neighbourhood and environment improvement projects, and much more, working collaboratively with others on many of these projects.
Coastline Housing is a member of PlaceShapers, a national alliance of more than 100 community-focused housing associations. Its members own and manage over 900,000 homes and provide services to more than two million people.
