About Scottish Borders Housing Association
Created by Tenants, for Tenants, Scottish Borders Housing Association (SBHA) is an independent Housing Association serving communities in the Scottish Borders by providing quality, affordable homes.
Scottish Borders Housing Association is a Registered Social Landlord and a Scottish Charity (SC030751). SBHA acquired its housing stock from Scottish Borders Council on 3rd March 2003, following an independent ballot of tenants.
We currently have 5,619 homes and have an Annual Turnover of over £24million, providing homes in 49 settlements. Our main concentrations of stock are in Hawick, Galashiels, Peebles, Selkirk, Kelso, and Jedburgh.
SBHA is emerging as a completely different provider from the one created in 2003 in terms of services, investment, finances, governance, and engagement. Tenant engagement, performance improvement, customer service and community involvement remain underlying priorities for future success. This is reflected in the Association’s strategic objectives, which are underpinned by SBHA’s values:
