Hexagon’s driving aim is: ‘To meet housing needs in South London through our commitment to existing and future residents, local communities and the environment’.
Hexagon is a charitable, not for profit housing association based in South East London. Hexagon was founded in 1990.
We work closely with local authorities to ensure that we complement and help to deliver their strategic housing needs. We are regulated by the Regulator for Social Housing (RSH) which is a Government agency responsible for registering and monitoring.
We own over 4,000 homes across seven London Boroughs and provide for a range of different needs:
- the majority of the properties (3,675) are for general needs tenants and are managed directly by Hexagon;
- we also provide nursing home accommodation in two homes for people who need nursing care;
We have a development programme in excess of 400 new homes over a four year period, utilising grant from the Government (the Greater London Authority or GLA) and a moderate Shared Ownership programme.
We provide housing and care for people in the greatest need who cannot afford other ways of getting a home and have been nominated by their local Council housing. We are governed by a remunerated Board of 12 people which currently meets six times a year. There are also three sub-committees: Audit & Risk; Remuneration; and Performance Management.
Equality and Diversity Policy
Hexagon Housing Association is committed to promoting equal opportunities both in the provision of services and in our employment practices. Hexagon serves diverse communities in South East London and the surrounding areas. We value diversity, and recognise the benefits of employing a diverse workforce in relation to our customer service and growth as an Organisation.
Through our work in providing affordable housing and care services, and as an employer, we will help ensure fair treatment for all members of the community, regardless of race, ethnic origin or nationality; gender; disability, whether mental or physical; religion; marital or family status; sexuality or sexual orientation; HIV status; age or physical appearance. We recognise that because some groups or people experience prejudice and discrimination, to make opportunities really available, we have to make an extra effort. We will strive to ensure that no-one receives less favourable treatment or is disadvantaged by any conditions, requirements, provisions criteria, procedures or practices that cannot be justified, or victimised for taking action against discrimination or harassment.

Single Equality Scheme 2020-2023
Hexagon’s Single Equality Scheme sets out how we will tackle discrimination and promote equality. We developed our first Equality Scheme in 2009 in consultation with customers, staff, and partners. Through the scheme we have made many strides forward, but our aim is to continuously improve and in this, our fourth Single Equality Scheme, while we have set out some of our main achievements, we want to concentrate on the future, setting out a number of new objectives for the next 3 years. You can see how we intend to do this by accessing the Single Equality Scheme 2020-2023 document here.
