The Jersey Homes Trust is the largest of a number of independent housing associations in Jersey. It was set up in 1995 to provide social rented homes for Island residents. The JHT now owns and manages 839 homes spread over 24 estates.
The JHT does not employ any staff. Management of the properties and all maintenance and repairs associated with it are outsourced. This ensures that costs are kept to a minimum thus providing a value-for-money service to the Island. The JHT is run by a Board of Trustees all of whom are active professional people.
