During the last 3 months we have been working on updating our policies and procedures for the management of Anti-social Behaviour. We know how difficult life can be if you are living with anti-social neighbours or experiencing problems in and around where you live. As part of our commitment to keeping you safe and secure in your home, we have drafted an Elim standard for the management of ASB that sets out what you can expect from us when you report nuisance. As a draft document we are keen for feedback and would welcome your comments on what we are proposing.Read More
Elim is unusual as a Social Housing provider in that we manage 12 Gypsy and Traveller sites that consist of around 180 individual pitches between Tewkesbury in Gloucestershire and South Devon. In early July this year Elim were approached by two local authorities in the South West looking for support with setting up temporary Gypsy and Traveller sites to help those who found themselves needing to move off the road following Covid-19 travel restrictions. The two sites were agreed in conjunction with the Police and Council to ensure Elim could offer the right amount of support across the sites.Read More
We recently ran a customer competition where we asked Elim residents to tell us how your Elim Home has contributed to your life, or to make any suggestions for improvements to our service. Whether this included obtaining financial support, securing a long-term rental, purchasing your own home, help finding employment, training or education, we wanted to hear from you.Read More
The Elim Housing Group comprises Elim Housing Association (EHA) with social housing aims, and Lime Property Ventures (LPV), a commercial subsidiary which was established in early 2016.
Elim Housing Association was established in 1963. The association is a charitable registered social landlord (RSL) registered with the Financial Conduct Authority under the Industrial and Provident Societies Act 1965 (No. 16402R) and is also registered with the Homes and Communities Agency under the Housing Associations Act 1985 (No. LH0977).
The Group currently owns and manages around 800 homes in England and Wales. The portfolio is mainly comprised of general needs homes, supported housing units, and Gypsy and Traveller Pitches, but also includes flats and houses both rented and sold to homeowners. Over the last year we have also delivered 25 units of student accommodation.
Our main focus for new development is in the four key local authorities of Bristol, North Somerset, Gloucester and South Gloucestershire.
Housing and support services are provided for our residents from the head office and local office bases in other areas. The association also provides management services for Barnwood Trust in Gloucester.
