We are a not for profit organisation, providing affordable housing and services to our residents.

Our vision is to provide quality services and to make a positive difference in our communities.

News and Events

  • The aim of the 2015 Essex Young People of the Year Awards or ‘YOPEYs’ is to ‘Reveal, Recognise & Reward’ young unsung heroes across the county and set them up as positive role models for other young people to copy.

    Do you know an Essex young person who ‘gives to others’? If you do then nominate them for a county-wide contest that aims to correct the image that all Essex young people want to be reality TV ‘stars’ or are engaged in anti-social behaviour. There is over £2,000 to be won.

  • We are aware that keeping our staff members hydrated will aid them to perform at their very best throughout the work day. As a result, we decided to invest in water dispensers from AquAid.

    Our unique relationship with AquAid has also given our organisation the opportunity to help those less fortunate than ourselves, because with each purchase an automatic donation is made to the Africa Trust. These funds are used to build ‘Elephant Pumps’ – a modified version of an age old Chinese rope pulley system. One such pump is currently being installed in Africa on our behalf and it will be a much needed source of clean and fresh drinking water for many.

    Our organisation’s name will be proudly displayed on our well and we look forward to adding some photos and letters of thanks from the villagers to our site in the near future.

    To date AquAid have built over 5,000 such Elephant Pumps across parts of Zimbabwe and Malawi; and have donated in excess of £8 million to charity.

  • Estuary's contract with Homeswapper will terminate on 19 July 2015 and will be replaced with our new service provider, Swap and Move.

  • As a significant provider of social housing in Essex and the East of London, we have borrowed £40 million from M&G Investments (“M&G”), a leading international investment manager, in a long-term financing deal.


    The 30-year private placement enables us to fulfill our development ambitions of 400 homes over the next three years. Half the homes are to be built in London boroughs and the remainder will be in Essex. Once completed, the developments will bring our total housing stock to around 4,500 properties by 2018.

  • The National Housing Federation are calling for all political parties to commit to end the housing crisis within a generation. Show your support by displaying one of the posters in your window.

    The problem:

    • For decades we have failed to build enough new homes. We are currently only building half the number we need every year.
    • Many of us can’t start a family because we can’t afford to move
    • Many adults still live with parents in overcrowded homes.
    • Many of us struggle to afford to keep a roof over our heads, or become homeless
    • The housing crisis is affecting people from all walks of life and all parts of the country.

    The solution:

    The time has come to end the housing crisis. For the sake of the next generation we must act now. The General Election 2015 offers that opportunity to show politicians that the public want to see more homes built and actions taken until everyone has a decent affordable home.
