The Cambridge Affordable Housing Trust exists to provide affordable and secure housing to the elderly and disadvantaged in the Cambridge community. The trust owns four small accommodation units in a complex adjacent to Cambridge Baptist Church: three two-bedroomed units and one one-bedroom unit. These units are fully occupied by settled tenants, and there is only occasionally a vacancy.
The Trust was established by Cambridge Baptist Church in 2016 after the church became aware of older people both in its congregation and in the wider community who were struggling to afford to pay the increasingly high market rentals in Cambridge.
The four units were purchased in late-2016. Since the purchase the Trust has focussed on improving the quality of its properties and bringing them up to the standard required by the Healthy Homes Act.
