All about us
We're a tenant-led, not for profit, charitable housing association and we own and manage more than 6,700 homes in the Wycombe District. Our tenants and leaseholders are our customers and have an important role in making sure that we remain truly tenant-led through everything that we do.
We are a social landlord and do all the things you would expect us to do, but there is a lot more to us, including our new companies that have been set up to offer rents that are based on a person's ability to pay, build more homes and offer an estate agency service...
To realise the potential in our communities. Read our full Corporate Journey here.
We cannot achieve our purpose alone or as individuals acting alone. We want to work with others who share our purpose and values. Our customers, volunteers and staff work together to achieve success.
We value everyone and seek to enable every individual to realise their potential.
We strive always to be the best we can, learning from our mistakes and celebrating our successes
In an ever-changing world, standing still is not an option. We constantly seek out new and better ways of achieving our purpose. We use our creativity to drive innovation and deliver our objectives.
Our homes are mainly on estates in the urban centres of High Wycombe, Princes Risborough and Marlow, with others on estates in rural areas such as Lane End, Stokenchurch and Bourne End. We have a number of sheltered housing schemes which are located across the district.
Just like any other organisation, we work within a set of rules to make sure we do business properly. These business rules set out the framework for an organisation so that it works in line with the law and takes into account the legal obligations it has.

Special General Meeting March 2018
If you are a shareholding member of Red Kite, you will have received a set of papers for our Special General Meeting on 28th March 2018 which explain some new rules which we are asking you to vote on. There are two special resolutions detailed in your pack - resolution one refers to this set of rules (Version 1 which include rule G12.5) and resolution 2 refers to this set of rules (Version 2 which doesn't include rule G12.5). This is because our lawyers have advised us that the FCA may require us to to make an additional change within the rules sent to you for approval.

When we first became Red Kite, we made a number of promises about what we would do as a housing association - these were outlined in the original housing transfer offer document. If you'd like to find out more, you can read the Housing Transfer Offer information pack here: Housing Transfer Offer
