The Joseph Rowntree Housing Trust (JRHT) is a charity and registered social landlord, set up by Joseph Rowntree in 1904.



In addition to developing Derwenthorpe, the focus for the ZERO-PLUS project, JRHT also carries out housing and care schemes in York and elsewhere in Yorkshire. These are of an innovative nature, demonstrating new forms of tenure, meeting special needs, creating strong self-governing communities and exploring new features of design. The special link with the Joseph Rowntree Foundation enables research to inform practice and practice to inform research.
