Helping homeless families

Bucks Housing has been awarded a £360,000 grant by South Bucks District Council, in order to help fund our purchase of three properties on the open market.  The properties will be used to provide temporary accommodation for potentially homeless households who are undergoing assessment by the local authority.  

Phil Green, Chief Executive, said: ‘‘We are delighted to have received this funding to purchase additional properties in the South Bucks District Council area. The scheme will provide families with good quality, well managed and maintained homes rather than having to live in expensive bed and breakfast accommodation, whilst also reducing the financial burden on the Local Authority.” 

As an organisation, we are committed to doing what we can to help end homelessness.  We are a member of ‘Homes for Cathy’ – a group of organisations who aim to highlight the continuing needs of homeless people and work jointly on strategies to end homelessness.  The group takes their name from the landmark 1966 film, ‘Cathy Come Home’.  We have recently signed up to the nine ‘Homes for Cathy’ commitments, which you can read about here .

Annual Residents’ Meeting

On Saturday 8 September, approximately 30 residents, board members and staff came together at our Stokenchurch office for our Annual Residents’ Meeting.

A review of last year was followed by the launch of our Strategic Plan, outlining our plans for the next five years.  Residents were particularly interested to hear about the forthcoming stock condition survey, which will help us develop our planned maintenance programmes. Other topics discussed were our new arrangements for resident involvement and consultation, our performance in areas such as rent arrears and repairs and our new lettable standard for empty properties. The meeting was followed by a buffet lunch. Thank you to those who gave up their Saturday morning to come along. If you would like to get more involved in Bucks Housing, we’d love to hear from you. You can find details of some of the ways you can get involved here.

BHA Installs Life Saving Technology

We are helping to keep tenants safe by installing new gas safety technology from a company called GasTag.

As you know, it is a legal requirement for your gas boiler to receive an annual safety check to make sure that it is operating correctly and to highlight any issues which could be a health and safety risk.

As part of this year’s annual check, or during any gas repair visit, our contractor will fit a small blue tag to your gas meter. This is a new product which will help us make sure that all of our gas safety checks are fully up to date. It also provides both us and you with the reassurance of knowing that any engineer working on your gas boiler is fully qualified and approved to do the work.

If you have any concerns or questions about GasTag, please contact us and we will be pleased to provide further information.
