Who we are…

Pickering and Ferens Homes (PFH) is a Registered Social Landlord (RSL), a Registered Charity and a member of the National Association of Almshouses. The vast majority of properties in the ownership of Pickering and Ferens Homes have been constructed for the benefit of older persons only. PFH therefore offer residents a license to occupy, and not a tenancy.

Pickering and Ferens Homes has grown to become the largest locally based independent provider of high quality housing accommodation within the city of Kingston upon Hull. The association owns over 1200 properties located within the city of Kingston upon Hull and the East Riding of Yorkshire. The association also provides a management and maintenance service to the Mrs D L Richardson’s Almshouse Charity – which owns 31 properties located in Hull and Bridlington. (You will need to apply separately if you are interested in these properties).

Pickering and Ferens Homes aims to provide a comprehensive range of housing services to enable residents to lead full and independent lives and to promote greater awareness of the housing needs of older people.

Pickering and Ferens Homes actively encourages resident participation and we value our close working relationships with the local community.
