Gateway Housing has been supporting communities to thrive since 1926

Gateway is a well-established community-based housing association with 3,000 properties, primarily in the London Borough of Tower Hamlets. 

Gateway was formed in 2008 when Bethnal Green and Victoria Park Housing Association merged with Labo Housing Association. 

Our early formation goes back to 1926 when we began life as Bethnal Green Housing Association. The first scheme at Queen Margaret Flats, still owned and managed by Gateway today, was opened in 1929.

We are uniquely the largest Sheltered Housing provider in Tower Hamlets and were the first registered provider of older persons shared ownership in the borough. We are particularly proud of our new build properties for leasehold, shared ownership and direct sale, which are low-density and high-quality.

We aim to provide great homes for people in East London and support communities to thrive.
