HCHA have six sheltered housing schemes, five are in Harrow and one is in Hounslow. All of these schemes are designed for people aged 60 or over. In sheltered housing you have your own bedsit, self contained flat or bungalow, living alongside other mature people.
HCHA is tackling the housing shortage in this target group by working in partnership with Harrow Council to provide a new shared housing service that specifically increases the supply of affordable housing for those who are currently either in bed and breakfast accommodation or are rough-sleepers.
HCHA is taking a planned and measured approach in our response to the pandemic. We are currently working on very detailed plans to work towards becoming a COVID Secure Workplace. Because we house a lot of older and vulnerable people who are all at higher risk from catching and becoming seriously ill from the virus, we are taking extra care to ensure that any work that we do focuses on the safety of our entire community as the priority.

Welcome to the Harrow Churches Housing Association
HCHA is a small, innovative and growing housing association providing housing for people in West London and the South East. We specialise in providing high quality lifetime homes for older people and in offering much needed affordable housing for others when opportunities arise. We provide:
Homes for people with life limiting chronic conditions and physical disabilities;
Housing for those who need affordable homes many of whom were homeless or in high priority housing need;
Single homeless people;
Rent to buy properties.
We started out in 1964 and were set up by members of local churches who got together to do something practical to change the living conditions of elderly people in Harrow. That 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 HCHA is an ambitious organisation that is also strongly committed to delivering the best value for money for both tenants and the public purse.
During times when many people living in flats do not have access to garden space, some of our Stanmore tenants get to sit in a garden, enjoy a walk in a wildflower meadow or woodland. Or if isolating, can look out on this lovely sight.
We are asking everyone who comes to our properties, the people who live there and our staff to maintain 2m distance from everyone who is not part of their household. You can ask our staff how this will work if you have an emergency repair, or ask us general questions about the guidance that Government…
On behalf of the HCHA Board of Management and our CEO Christopher Holley, we wish to say a huge thank you to the many people in the community who have helped our vulnerable tenants. We greatly appreciate the work of so many individuals, volunteers and organisations who have worked tirelessly and selflessly to support our…
