					  What is Nomad Homes?

This leaflet explains what types of housing Nomad Homes
          has to offer and where they are located.
Who is Nomad Homes?
Nomad Homes is a housing association. We provide housing
for many different sectors of the community. We always seek to
help the most disadvantaged. These may be people who cannot
get local authority housing because there is not enough, or
because they do not qualify. We have been around since 1974
and are based in Newcastle upon Tyne. We have many types of
housing across Tyne and Wear, Northumberland and Cumbria.

What is a housing association?
Housing associations are independent not-for-profit organisations
that provide low cost housing for people in housing need.

They are major providers of homes for rent, while many also run
low cost home ownership schemes to help people who cannot
afford to buy their own homes outright. In these schemes, the
buyer owns a proportion of the home, and rents the remaining
share from the association.

Some associations specialise in providing housing for younger
single people, or for those who need special support – for
example, people with mental illness or drug problems.

What sort of homes do Nomad Homes have?
We manage over 3,000 properties for single people, couples,
families, and older persons.

The types of properties we have include bedsits, flats, houses
and bungalows.

Most of our properties are for rent and we also have housing for
those who require special support.
We are the largest developer in the North East of low cost home
ownership schemes.
