CHISEL is a neighbourhood housing association based in Southeast London, which provides a range of homes for people in housing need and on low incomes.

Co-operative housing is at our very core and as such we are dedicated to a high level of tenant participation in the management and strategic development of the organisation. We manage about 250 homes in south-east London, Colchester and Brighton.

CHISEL is registered with the Homes and Communities Agency (No. L3642).  Chisel is also registered as an Industrial and Provident Society (No. 25155R).

CHISEL provides both self-contained and shared housing for rent. About one third of our properties are timber-framed houses built by the tenants who live in them. The rest are mainly modernised older properties although we do have a small number of new, purpose-built homes.

Who do we house?

CHISEL does not normally take direct applications, so we do not operate a general waiting list. Very occasionally we are able to accept direct applications for some of our shared housing in London and Brighton. For more details visit Become a Tenant.
