Canopy Housing are an award-winning, charitable community benefit society based in Leeds.

We bring derelict property back into use, house homeless families, train unemployed people in construction skills, create jobs, improve community cohesion, and contribute to the regeneration of disadvantaged areas.

Person specification

We need someone who shares Canopy’s vision and compassion; who has a sound knowledge of social housing and the third sector; who recognizes the challenges faced by smaller providers; and who can provide the support and leadership required during a period of transition.

About the role

We now own or manage 80 properties across Leeds and are in the process of becoming a Registered Provider of social housing. We have strong, strategic links with Leeds City Council and work closely with the charitable trusts who support us in achieving our mission.

Our Chair will be retiring at next Summer’s AGM so we are recruiting now to allow the incoming Chair the opportunity to spend some time with their predecessor before settling into the post.
