Origin Housing

With over 90 years experience in developing affordable homes, Origin Housing are one of the UK’s longest established housing associations.

Today, they give people the opportunity to buy or rent properties through shared ownership, intermediate rent and, increasingly, private sale, as well as providing affordable housing and care and support services across London and Hertfordshire.

In 2008, Origin brought in Faust PR to generate positive press coverage and set up a community engagement programme, for a high profile housing scheme at Watford Football Club. Impressed with their enthusiasm and dedication, Origin subsequently appointed Faust to service all of their PR requirements, from maximising on media exposure and providing social media strategy, to organising stakeholder events.

Faust now work with almost all of Origin’s departments, from new homes and community development, to finance and HR.

Simon Scott, Head of Sales and Marketing at Origin Housing, comments “Faust PR have become a vital contributor to our marketing operations here at Origin. Their innovative, fresh approach to writing press releases and award entries, has resulted in great coverage in target media and a number of prestigious award wins. No matter what the task, they always deliver.”
