One Housing Group Limited (OHGL) is the company set up as a result of a transfer of engagement, collapsing Toynbee and Island Homes into Community Housing Association Limited, and then a change of name to One Housing Group Limited. OHGL was originally an "industrial and provident society", however this changed with the Co-operative and Community Benefit Societies Act 2014, and so OHGL is now an exempt charity and a registered society under the 2014 Act, registration number 20453R. OHGL is registered with the Homes and Communities Agency (HCA), registration number LH0171.
OHGL has a board of twelve members, which includes a resident board member. A number of years ago the Housing Corporation, the forerunner of the HCA were encouraging HAs to appoint residents to their Board. This is now discouraged as the gradual withdrawal of grant has meant that the HCA requires that HAs have to develop properties for sale to subsidise the building of new homes for rent, and thereby requiring that Boards now have members with a professional background. The trend has also been in recent years for paid Officers to become members of the Board.
There are a number of subsidiaries wholly owned by OHGL, including:
There are also further subsidiary companies that develop properties for outright sale.
There are a number of joint venture companies which OHGL has investments in, including:
