Home / About Us
IKE Supported Housing Ltd is a social landlord that was established in March 2003 as a Not for Profit Housing Association; an organisation Ltd by Guarantee (4713032). The company became a Private Registered Provider, registered with The Homes and Communities Agency in October 2015 (4822) and is a member of the Housing Ombudsman Scheme.
The company’s primary aim is to deliver supported accommodation for Adults with an Autistic Spectrum Condition, Learning and Physical Disabilities, sensory impairment, and mental health needs. People who are often socially excluded because of their conditions.
At IKE we aim to be a housing provider that understands the specific circumstances of people living in supported housing and that strives to provide services that are relevant to their individual needs. We see our role as providing The Tenant with all the support necessary to maintain their tenancy in order to help them lead a more independent life. IKE is a specialist supported housing company and does not manage general needs or other forms of social housing.
