Notting Hill Housing Trust is a charity registered in England which aims to deliver urban regeneration and new developments. Originally launched in 1963 in Notting Hill, they now have 25,000 homes across London and the South East and are a member of the G15 [2] group of London housing associations. Their patron is HRH The Duchess of Gloucester.

History[edit]

In 1963, Bruce Kenrick moved to Notting Hill and was shocked at the poor quality of housing that people were forced to live in. He began a fundraising drive, with the aim to raise enough money to buy one home to house several homeless families. Notting Hill Housing Trust was born, and in their first year they had bought five houses and housed 57 people. Within five years, they became a large presence in west London, housing nearly 1,000 people. [3]
