    Formed in 1964 by the Catholic Aid Society as Family Housing Association (Manchester) Ltd, the Association initially focused on addressing the problem of homeless families in Manchester with the support of grant funding from Shelter during the late 1960s.

    The Association became a prominent housing association developer in Manchester and Trafford during the 1970s with a particular focus on the areas of Moss Side, Cheetham Hill and Old Trafford.  By the 1980s it had grown to become the largest Manchester-based housing association.

    In 2002 the Association became a founder member of the Adactus Group Structure.  In 2004 it accepted a transfer of engagements from fellow group-member County Palatine Ltd extending its areas of operation into Lancashire and Sefton.

    In 2005 the Association changed its name to Adactus Housing Association Ltd.

    In 2007 the Association took on the management of 1,500 Manchester City Council owned properties under the Miles Platting PFI contract.

    In 2008, the Association accepted a transfer of engagements from Neston and Parkgate Housing Society.  This included some 200 homes in Neston.

    In 2009, the Association entered into a management agreement with Chorley Community Housing Ltd.  The agreement moved the management of some 1,800 AHA properties in Lancashire and Sefton to CCH.
