Thrift Urban Housing was formed by a group of committed people in 1997. Initially, our focus was solely on housing, helping people who, for whatever reason, have difficulties in life. Although our role has broadened since then, to better meet the needs of the people who have turned to us, housing-related concerns remain the core issue for us.

Our primary motivation was, and remains, the shortfall in the services provided by Local Authorities and other Agencies. The former simply are not in a position to provide individually tailored support; the latter either do not have the required expertise in housing-related matters, or are not focussed on the practical aspects.

We pride ourselves on helping individuals in need - with the emphasis on 'individuals'. Everything we do is tailored to the needs of the individual, to suit each person in the best way possible.
