In 1972, after watching the BBC drama Cathy Come Home, our founder John Belcher began the then named Sheffield Family Housing Association; helping young homeless families in Sheffield.
Over forty years later we’re still providing quality local living; retrofitting, renovating, designing & building homes throughout the city region but the work we do is now more than housing; 60% of our work is providing care and support, helping vulnerable people to remain independent.
John Belcher founded our organisation in 1972 and sadly passed away in 2011. Speaking in 1992, 20 years after the organisation was founded, John said:
“If I was looking for something which sums up the achievements of South Yorkshire Housing Association, I would say that you need good people to achieve good results.”
At South Yorkshire Housing Association our people are our best assets. We don’t want you to just work for us – we want you to develop the skills and talents you already have, and discover new ones.
You’ll have the freedom to really push yourself, and make a real difference to the way we work. If you’ve got ideas, we want to hear them.
We know that for us to be the best, we have to employ the best people, and make sure they are rewarded for their excellence. All of our staff receive generous benefits, including 27 days annual leave plus Bank Holidays (including four extra SYHA Days) flexible working, and all the learning and training you need to excel in your role.
What makes our organisation stand out is our staff and their commitment to helping others. Click on the video to the right for an introduction from our Chief Executive, Tony Stacey.
If South Yorkshire Housing Association sounds like the place for you, we’d love to hear from you!
