- About us
Ashram is a West Midlands housing association that provides community-inspired housing and services and is an agency for social inclusion and social impact, developing person-centred services to meet people's needs, choices and aspirations. Our cultural expertise means we can serve a wide range of the region. We are a not-for-profit organisation with charitable status and have been a registered social landlord since 1994.
Based in Tyseley, Birmingham, the organisation was founded to meet the needs of South Asian communities living in the Midlands. However, Ashram recognised the social importance of moving from being a specialist black and minority ethnic provider to a mainstream organisation and now also serves, supports and empowers a diverse cross-section of communities.
We use our practical experience to work on national projects, publishing research and developing online engagement websites and encompass three areas: health and social care, housing and research and policy.
The Association is one of seven organisations in the wider Accord Group. The Accord Group comprises Ashram, Caldmoreaccord and Moseley and District, as well as bchs, Fry Housing Trust, Redditch Co-operative Homes and Direct Health.
