BHA builds and manages homes to rent to suit a range of lifestyles, personal needs and family sizes that people can afford. We do so in communities throughout Berwickshire and are ever keen to expand the number and choice of homes available. We are passionate about our role in providing individuals, couples and whole families with a home in which they can live their life to the full in a safe, comfortable and attractive setting.
We are a charity, so the rents we receive pay to keep our homes in great condition through our repairs service and by our planned maintenance service, which ensures our homes are always modern and comfortable.
While we do all we can to improve opportunities in each of the communities we serve, we look to our tenants to pay their rent, look after their home and play a positive role in their neighbourhood to help us achieve our vision of 'Creating Thriving Rural Communities'
Our tenants have an opportunity to help shape the future by getting involved in what we do through our Tenant Volunteers and Scrutiny Panel.
We are more than just a housing provider though. We deliver a number of community support services including sheltered housing and supporting our tenants who live there. We provide a befriending service to support the lonelier members of our communities. In our coastal communities we provide an employment support service to help people find that confidence to get back in to work and in the Duns area, we support families to continue working by providing affordable, quality day care for their kids at Little Reivers and after school club, Kreative Kids.
