The Bolton Community Homes (BCH) Website is a useful directory of BCH services, working groups, local services, organisations, schemes and projects within Housing and other related services. It enables you to find out about upcoming BCH meetings and allows access to meeting documentation including copies of agendas, minutes and presentations. It allows partners, stakeholders and colleagues to signpost and refer individuals you work with to services available to them in Bolton. There is a links section enabling access to other useful websites, linking those who need help with the organisations that can provide it.
Bolton Community Homes (BCH) is Bolton's independent strategic housing regeneration company, founded by Bolton Metropolitan Borough Council in 1992.
Our membership encompasses Registered Social Landlords; private landlords and developers; customers and community and voluntary organisations. Collectively, our members manage and maintain more than 25,000 homes, directly employ more than 1,300 people in Bolton and lead on a wide range of regeneration initiatives which are crucial to the propersity of the borough.
BCH plays a facilitating role - bringing partners together to deliver joined-up services and helping developers to take projects from the drawing board to final delivery. Although we usually work behind the scenes, our results are highly visible, as we improve housing provision, and unlock new opportunities for residents.
Our partner organisations are all unique, but are still able to come together with a shared vision and approach.
This shared vision is contained in the BCH Partnership Agreement, to which all partner organisations are committed. Members also subscribe to a wide range of shared protocols, from tackling anti-social behaviour to equality and diversity, to ensure key issues are handled consistently and professionally across the borough.
Together, BCH and its partners have achieved some remarkable successes over the years - and there is so much more to come.
