Our History

Our History

A small charitable housing association, CHADD was formed in 1979 by a group of Christian volunteers under the leadership of the Bishop of Dudley to meet special areas of housing need, which had been identified in the Borough.

It has always received support and encouragement from Dudley Metropolitan Borough Council with whom we are happy to work in partnership in many activities.

A small but steady development programme meant that by 1988 CHADD was able to provide homes for 66 people and establish its own independent management office in Dudley.  This facilitated a continuing new development programme in response to identified needs and a series of co-operative arrangements and mergers with other small organisations.
