HCHA houses significant numbers of older and vulnerable people, many of whom are at a higher risk of becoming seriously ill if infected, so we have taken extra care to ensure that our work focuses on the safety of our entire community. We hope that everyone who can be vaccinated has been, or will choose to be soon. Though the restrictions have been lifted, COVID-19 has not gone away, and we strongly encourage our tenants, visitors, staff and contractors to remain cautious, and to continue to take care, so that we all keep ourselves and each other safe.

Harrow Churches Housing Association to become Greenhill Housing Association

Over the past few months we have been talking to our Shareholders and Tenants about changing the name of the Association to reflect the diversity of our tenants and the fact that our operating areas have moved beyond the boundaries of the London Borough of Harrow.

We have completed our consultation and discussions and considered the feedback, which was mainly positive, and at a Special General meeting our Shareholders agreed that from the 1st October 2023 we will become known as Greenhill Housing Association.

There are no charges to your services or agreements as a result of this name change but you will start to see changes to our branding on letters, emails, Staff uniforms and ID badges during October. As always if you are unsure about a visitor claiming to be from HCHA or Greenhill Housing, please contact us.

Our new logo and branding will be launched in the coming weeks so watch this space!

If you have any questions about the name change, please talk to your Housing Officer or Scheme Manager in the first instance.

“ As part of our ongoing review of our housing, we will presently be undertaking a series of “light touch” external surveys of our General Needs properties. This will not require tenants to be present. The work will be undertaken by surveyors from HDS who will each carry a photo ID card. If you have any doubt as to the validity of the surveyor please contact Peter Gray, Director of Asset Management on 020 8424 2776 or 07747 234 096. Thank you ”

Our Values

Greenhill Housing Association derives from two Housing Associations, one formed in 1964 by members of Harrow Baptist Church (Harrow Baptist Housing Association) and responsible for the construction of the bungalows at Becket Fold and the other, Harrow Churches Housing Association, which was responsible for the conversion of Wolstenholm into sheltered accommodation. These two Associations developed separately for many years doing something practical to change the living conditions of elderly people in Harrow.  In 1994 HBHA and HCHA agreed to merge but retain the name of Harrow Churches Housing Association. HCHA merged with smaller providers over the years to become in October 2023 the vibrant organisation that is today Greenhill Housing Association, GHHA.

The founding members ethos continues to drive our social mission and values today. We are proud of our past and we aim to continue to provide more homes for more people in the future. We may be small but GHHA is an ambitious organisation that is also strongly committed to delivering the best value for money for our Tenants.
