    Mencap is a charity which provides community housing for people with learning difficulties.

    It has now registered its housing department as a housing association, Inside Housing reports.

    The charity set up Golden Lane Housing (GLH) in 1998, which has now registered to be a social landlord with the Homes and Communities Agency.

    The organisation owns 400 homes across England and will now be subject to HCA regulation and access grant and financial benefits for housing associations.

    Director of GLH, Graham Alastair stated, “Becoming a registered provider will provide more security for our existing tenants at a time when there is increasing uncertainty as a result of welfare reforms.

    “We will also be able to offer more flexibility, and provide different types of housing for greater numbers of vulnerable tenants, which would otherwise have been unviable”.
