Our mission and values

We are committed to being:


AIHA exists to serve people in housing need within the Orthodox Jewish community. People are at the heart of our business. By understanding people’s diverse needs and strengths, we can serve them better and provide services that positively impact their lives.


We search for solutions and ideas that overcome the challenges faced by the people we exist to serve. We are ready to work creatively and flexibly to meet the needs of our service users, tenants, leaseholders, communities and partners.

An Orthodox Jewish organisation

We are proud of our association with the worldwide Agudas Israel movement, and are true to Orthodox Jewish religious ethos and values. We are an open and welcoming organisation, respectful of people of all backgrounds and beliefs.


We aim to lead the way through our knowledge and expertise, investing for a strong future and excelling in all we do to provide the highest possible standards of service.


We work in partnership with our service users, tenants, leaseholders, communities and other experts, to bring everyone together and achieve more.


We are open and honest, with a friendly, enthusiastic and energetic way of working that is true to what we stand for.
