About us

Phoenix Community Housing is a not-for-profit resident-led housing association in the Bellingham, Whitefoot, Downham areas of south Lewisham, London.

Properties were transferred from Lewisham Council in a large-scale voluntary transfer in December 2007 following a positive ballot of all tenants. We own and manage more than 6,000 homes. 

Community Gateway

We are the first housing association in London to use the Community Gateway approach. This empowers tenants and leaseholders to take a central part in decision-making and to become shareholding members.

Tenants and leaseholders elected by residents are the largest group on the management board. They also have powers to take local decisions through a structure of neighbourhood and special interest panels.

We support local community initiatives to improve the environment and quality of life for all residents. 

Our vision

"To work together to build a better future for our Phoenix community"

The Green Man

On 25 November 2013 Phoenix moved to a new building called The Green Man.

This is right at the heart of the homes we own and manage and is much more than our headquarters. It offers a range of community facilities to breathe new life into the area we serve.
