GIDA Housing Co-operative has been set up in direct response to the poor quality of private rented housing experienced by Black and Minoritised communities in Tottenham and across London, both in terms of affordability and lack of influence over management and maintenance of their homes. We see the current opportunity for at least 50 community led homes to be established on the St Ann’s Hospital Site Tottenham as a way to address this and demonstrate an alternative that empowers communities and builds social value.
GIDA is the Hausa (Northern Nigerian) word for “home”.
GIDA was birthed from The Ubele Initiative as part of our commitment to Community Wealth Building and leading on the establishment of Black and Minoritised national strategic alliance for community wealth building. GIDA is formed by a partnership of three community groups, Rode Housing Co-operative, Bahay Kubo Housing Association (BKHA) and The Ubele Initiative.
We envision becoming an affordable housing provider which empowers under-represented communities, by giving them influence and collective control over the management and maintenance of their own homes, as a response to the poor quality and insecure private rented housing many have had to endure.
