North Star welcomes residents of Darlington Housing Association - Find out more

We’re a North East based Housing Association and our purpose is to provide affordable housing, invest in our communities and develop new homes across the Tees Valley, North Yorkshire and County Durham.

We’re also a PlaceShaper, a national network of more than 100 community-focused housing associations. Together we own and manage more than 805,000 homes and provide services to more than two million people. We re-invest 100% of our profits into our homes and communities, and have helped more than 60,000 people into work since 2010.

North Star joined PlaceShapers because it stood for all the values we hold dearly. We met the criteria and more: being local and community focused, creating and developing great relationships, collaboration, sharing, transparency and honesty. When we looked at the existing list of members, they were Housing Associations that we valued and respected. All of this  meant we could share with organisations good practice, information, advice and guidance.
