About Scottish Borders Housing Association

Created by Tenants, for Tenants in 2003, Scottish Borders Housing Association (SBHA) is one of the largest Housing Associations in Scotland, serving communities in the Scottish Borders by providing over 5,600 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 who voted for:

  • modernised homes for all;
  • genuine influence in the services they receive;
  • continued Right to Buy;
  • affordable rents; and
  • action on Anti-Social Behaviour.

We work in partnership with Scottish Borders Tenant’s Organisation and key local partners to ensure that we provide the best outcomes for our tenants and their communities.

SBHA has 5 strategic objectives

We are committed to delivering our five key objectives:

  • SBHA will Listen to Tenants and their Communities to Innovate and Improve
  • SBHA will Create Great Places to Live
  • SBHA will Inspire and Develop our People to Make Change Happen
  • SBHA will Deliver Excellent Value for Money
  • SBHA will Anticipate Opportunities to Develop and Grow

SBHA currently employs 196 Staff, including an in-house Property Services Team. The Head Office is located in Selkirk with two smaller offices in Galashiels and Hawick. 

Developing our people has always been an important priority for us. We have recently achieved Investors In People accreditation, and employ a number of Modern Apprentices, while staff development remains at the forefront of our organisation.

We are continually striving to further improve our service delivery model and have a number of on-going projects looking at how we deliver better service to our tenants that meet their changing needs and expectations. Business growth is central to our future success.
