In 2006, both organisations came together to create Connect because they shared a common approach to providing homes, investing in communities and providing support services across West Yorkshire. That heritage has carried on in the work of Connect today and our passion is for a fairer society, where people’s homes, health and happiness matter.
“Connect is one of the housing associations whose roots can be traced to the time of the BBC drama ‘Cathy Come Home’ and its founding organisations were created in response to the housing crisis then. Fifty years later and we still have a housing crisis – I want Connect to continue to be part of the solution.”
Helen Lennon, Chief Executive, Connect
