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.


Our Vision

Creating homes, building futures.


Our Social Purpose

We care about the people and the communities that we serve.   We work, in collaboration with others, to create stable, secure, trusting and supportive environments where people feel they belong.


Our Values


We create environments to enable people, places and communities to thrive. We believe many things are possible and that our energy brings about exciting change.


We are connected to the world we live in. Therefore, we are relevant, informed and knowledgeable. We develop strong relationships that are based on integrity and trust.


We challenge ourselves and others. We experiment, pioneer and we dare to be different.


We build homes, but more importantly we create futures, and we develop our communities from the inside out. We work together to build on community strengths and to really help make a difference to people’s lives. This can be seen in the vast, varied and valuable community investment and tenant involvement work we coordinate. We deliver a wide range of initiatives, ranging from school breakfast clubs, reading groups and homework clubs, to creating community gardens and green spaces, providing work placement opportunities and supporting local foodbanks.

At North Star, we place people at the forefront of everything we do. Our vision, our values and our organisational strategy are all centred on creating and sustaining great places for people to live and work in. We strive to make a difference and our culture is what sets us apart from the rest. We hear, we listen and most importantly we act, we embrace challenge and change, continually striving to improve and enhance the lives of our staff and our tenants.

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.
