Pathways is a not-for-profit organisation working to help communities and individuals through the provision of housing and grant funding.

Pathways is extremely proud of its long history in providing affordable accommodation, predominantly for older people, and assistance to local people and communities that dates back to several centuries ago. We are very proud of our rich heritage but we are also a forward thinking organisation that is eager to adapt to the needs of our beneficiaries in changing times.

Over the last few years Pathways has expanded on a large scale, allowing us to help people in need from communities across Greater London and the surrounding areas to find safe, secure, affordable and well maintained sheltered accommodation in their older age.

Pathways have a long history in providing almshouse accommodation to the community dating back to our roots from the seventeenth century. We are proud of this heritage and strive to be forward thinking and adaptable in our approach to providing sheltered housing for older people in the areas where we work while staying true to our founding principles. Pathways manage more than 250 sheltered housing units across London and Kent, 6 general needs housing units in West Ealing, and a row of commercial units in Ealing.


Pathways are dedicated to being a valuable member of the local communities based where we work to provide housing and grant funding. Since 2004, in Ealing and Brentford Pathways have provided grant funding to small charities and community groups in the local area who work to help disadvantaged people or create stronger bonds between members of the community.


Pathways provide a large amount of allotment space for the local community at two sites in West Ealing. The two sites are based at Haslemere Avenue and Northfields Avenue. This allotment space contributes to our work to build a stronger community, encourages healthy living and provides the opportunity for people to practice horticulture and urban farming. In total we have approximately 260 plots that we let every year at a very low cost and exclusively to members of the local community, providing a valuable local resource and community asset that encourages community cohesion, and healthy, sustainable living.
