History and values
We built our first scheme, at Shipfield in Norwich, in 1967. Today Broadland Housing Association provides more than 5,000 quality homes across Norfolk and north Suffolk.
We believe everyone deserves a home that meets their needs. That’s why our growing range of properties includes everything from family homes and modern apartments, right through to sheltered housing and housing with care homes.
But we do more than simply build houses. At the end of the day, our business is about people, helping to create thriving neighbourhoods and communities – so we put customers first in everything we do.
This commitment means offering a caring, effective and high-quality service that’s fair to everyone. We’re continually looking at ways to deliver improvements in our services, right across the board.
We want to continue building great living environments – where our customers have real choice and real control.
