The association is a registered charity which oversees the upkeep of four cottages on Earls Lane in the village of Deddington.
The Housing Association was established in the early 1970s following a generous donation from Mrs Cora Collin a local resident. The association is described as: "Limited under the Industrial & Provident Societies Act 1965". Our latest accounts confirm that: "they comply with the Industrial & Provident Societies Act 1965 and the Friendly & Industrial & Provident Societies Act 1968". On a more practical basis each member of the committee on joining pays £1 for a share.
The objective of the Association is "to provide housing for aged and/or physically disabled persons in necessitous circumstances within the parish of Deddington upon terms appropriate to their needs."
Of the four cottages, three are suitable for single occupancy and the fourth is a double occupancy.
Whenever cottages are available for rent an advertisement is placed in The Deddington News and on notice boards in and around the parish.
The Association committee is made up of volunteers from the village and the committee strive to ensure the cottages are maintained to a high standard while at the same time keeping the rents charged as low as possible.
