We welcomed our first customers in 1965, as North British Housing Association. NBHA was based in Preston, Lancashire, in north-west England – where Places for People still calls home. From our earliest days, we wanted to be more than just a provider of homes.
In the 1970s NBHA set up a subsidiary with charitable status to care and support for people using its housing services.
A few years later North British Landscapes was created to look after the housing association’s maintenance and landscaping needs.
Here at Places for People, creating social value for customers and communities is at the heart of our approach. We are therefore delighted to announce that we have joined the Communities that Work network, which will aid our delivery of social value, by providing our customers with additional support to securing long-term employment.
