Deptford Housing Co-operative was built in 1978 and is a fully mutual ownership co-operative with 138 residencies, mostly in shared houses, but also with some self contained houses, bedsits and flats. Seven of the properties are leasehold.  The co-op has its own office, community centre, shared wireless broadband and computer facilities, car parks and attractive communal gardens.

Located in the northern part of the London Borough of Lewisham, the co-operative is well placed for travel into central London. Deptford rail and DLR stations are both nearby and many buses pass along the major routes at either end of the nearby High Street. The historic Deptford Market, Greenwich Park and river Thames are all within walking distance.

Deptford Housing Co-operative issues contractual tenancies and accepts nominations from Lewisham Council. The Co-operative also has its own waiting list and often has availability in its shared accommodation.
