Established in 1977, Linc-Cymru Housing Association Ltd (Linc) is a Registered Society under the Co-operative and Community Benefit Societies Act 2014 and a Registered Social Landlord regulated by the Welsh Government. We are a socially responsible business and all profits are reinvested for the benefit of our customers rather than being distributed to shareholders.
An organisation’s values say a great deal about a company’s mind set, the way it thinks, the direction it is going, what drives it and whether it is an organisation that values people. We are very clear on our values:
We are focused on ensuring that the services we provide to our customers are directed at meeting their needs and represent value for money.
We have a positive, ‘can do’ attitude in all that we do that enhances our reputation as a leading provider of housing, health and social care services across Wales.
Our approach is innovative and forward looking, consistently seeking new opportunities and ways of working in partnership with others to evolve and enhance our services.
We have two primary strands, or business units within our corporate structure:
Linc Homes operates across South Wales and provides social and affordable homes for rent and to buy. Our intermediate and market rent schemes provide homes to people who are unable to buy due to the current economic climate or who want to rent but do not qualify for social housing.
Linc Care operates across Wales and provides homes and services to older and vulnerable tenants. We specialise in supported housing for vulnerable people; sheltered housing for older people; extra Care housing, nursing and respite care. Our nursing care activities are regulated by the Care and Social Services Inspectorate Wales (CSSIW).
In more recent times, organisations like Linc have been encouraged to diversify into other businesses that support or add value to wider community regeneration projects. We have two such ventures and further information can be found on our Linc Enterprise page.
