JOSEPH ROWN­TREE HOUS­ING TRUST

Yorkshire Post - Property - - PROPERTY -

THE Joseph Rown­tree Hous­ing Trust was es­tab­lished in 1968 to take over re­spon­si­bil­ity for the hous­ing op­er­a­tions of the Joseph Rown­tree Me­mo­rial Trust (now known as the Joseph Rown­tree Foun­da­tion - JRF). JRF was one of the three trusts cre­ated by Joseph Rown­tree in 1904 and was orig­i­nally es­tab­lished to ad­min­is­ter Rown­tree’s model vil­lage, New Ear­swick. In 1959 the ob­jec­tives of the orig­i­nal trust were widened to in­clude re­search and de­vel­op­ment and this re­mains JRF’s pur­pose to­day. The Hous­ing Trust also has hous­ing and care schemes in York and else­where in York­shire. www.jrht.org.uk
