Welcome to the Association of Housing Advice Services
The Association of Housing Advice Services – AHAS – has been representing housing needs departments since 1990. Our members share best practice in providing housing advice, preventing homelessness and reducing temporary accommodation. We engage other professionals, landlords and the government on housing related issues, developments in legislation, single homelessness, and housing solutions.
We represent the Statutory Sector and fully contracted out housing services. The organisation is run entirely by operational managers who have first hand expertise and experience of the challenges of delivering housing services . We hold regular meetings, conferences and seminars to discuss and examine issues which affect the sector and disseminate good practice and cost savings initiatives. We foster dialogue with private sector landlords.
Membership is free. Our primary catchment area is London and the south east but any local authority housing need department is welcome.
AHAS is a body representing housing advice providers. We do not provide advice or information directly to the public, although our members do.
If you require housing advice please contact your local authority.
