The Industrial Dwellings Society (1885) Limited
IDS was established as the Four Per Cent Dwellings Company in 1885 by a group of Jewish philanthropists who hoped to relieve the overcrowding in homes in the East End of London.
In 1952, it became the Industrial Dwellings Society (1885) Ltd. You can read more about our history in this Hackney Today article.
Today, IDS manages around 1,500 properties in Hackney, Tower Hamlets, Southwark, Redbridge, Barnet and Hertsmere.
The housing stock includes flats, houses, sheltered housing, accommodation for people with special needs, as well as a number of shared ownership properties.
We currently employ over fifty staff, including residentially-based teams.
We have an on-going development portfolio, and enjoy enviable performance statistics in housing management and tenant satisfaction.
Our tenants are reflective of the general ethnic mix but we maintain strong links with Jewish communities and, in this respect, are regarded as a specialist housing provider.
