One Manchester (supporters of the “Performing & Fine Arts Institution of the Year” and “Business Services Professional of the Year” Awards)

One Manchester is a provider of housing and community services. Formed in April 2015 from a historic merger between two of Manchester’s largest housing associations – City South and Eastlands Homes, they currently own and manage more than 12,000 homes in central, south and east Manchester.

As an experienced and trustworthy landlord, they provide good quality homes that are safe, secure, warm and affordable, and they are proud to be known as a housing association. However, they believe that their responsibilities go much further than providing homes. Their view is that housing associations are all about place-making. They regularly look at the issues which go beyond housing and especially those that are specific to each of their communities. They help people manage their money, find work, start-up businesses and stay healthy and well.
