Barnsbury Housing Association was formed in 1967 by a group of local professionals (architects, surveyors and solicitors), to save properties on Barnsbury Street from being demolished, and to provide more good quality and affordable housing in Islington.
Barnsbury HA continued to grow as a neighbourhood-based housing association, becoming integral to the Barnsbury community and also continued to develop new homes where it was possible. By 2016, BHA had grown to provide 255 homes across Islington.

In 2017 BHA acquired Highbury View from Crown Simmons Housing to increase the amount of affordable homes we provide to 295 and also became BHA’s first sheltered housing scheme. We also broke ground on our site at Eden Grove, which will provide 4 more homes in 2018.
