About us

At Leicester Quaker Housing we offer a range of housing, support and care to older people, and people living with dementia.

We provide:

  • Housing and services, that are affordable without compromising on quality
  • Services that recognise everyone as an individual, with their own unique needs

Existing and former residents, and their families, speak highly of us. You can read some of their testimonials here

Leicester Quaker Housing Association (LQHA) was founded in the 1970's by the Quaker Meeting in Leicester. More information about its history can be found here

In 2015 LQHA amalgamated with Nottingham Community Housing Association (NCHA), and were renamed Leicester Quaker Housing (LQH). LQH form part of NCHA's Housing with Care and Support department; a Leicester-based standing committee continue to oversee LQH's services.

Our services include:

Residential care

George Hythe House is a residential care home for older people and those living with dementia. A large, skilled team of staff provide a comprehensive care service that adapts to each resident's individual wishes and needs.

Independent living

We offer high quality rented accomodation, with support staff and security of tenure, for older people in Leicester.

Day care

Holmfield Day Centre, in the grounds of George Hythe House, provides activities, entertainment and stimulation for people living with dementia. Open from 9am to 5pm, Monday to Friday, we serve refreshments during the day and a hot meal at lunchtime. We provide personal care to those who need it.

The management of our services is independently assessed and registered with the British Standards Institute. Our housing and care are regulated by Government bodies as well as the Council. We are a not for profit organisation, we aim to keep our charges affordable and any surplus we make is invested into improving our services.
