The housing network is operated by Olan Trust on behalf of Olan Homes Ltd, which is supported by Olan Trust but is a separately-managed independent company, a fully-mutual housing co-operative, registered society number: 032133R.
It is a housing network with a difference - a co-operative housing service. We provide affordable, environmentally-sustainable, and accessible homes to people of all backgrounds and lifestyle needs, and making the best usage of space in crowded inner-city areas, combined with shared facilities.
Olan Homes is unique in providing a mobile membership - which can be transferred (subject to conditions) across the network's properties on application, combined with a range of homes from dormitory accommodation available to those required both high quality shared communal facilities combined with low cost accommodation. Other properties include shared homes, family units, and single-room flats, with both quiet and lively zones to cater for differing lifestyles. Olan Homes also provides staffed and supported accommodation to those referred or self-referred with support needs.
All the accommodation provided is as ecologically-sustainable as feasible, and includes access to communal facilities which may include lounges, laundry rooms, meeting rooms, and gardens. All tenants are encouraged to be actively involved in the management of their properties and to engage socially.
