Hardship Fund

In response to the COVID-19 cirsis, BHA launched a Hardship Fund for residents. The purpose of this fund is to provide financial aid for residents who are struggling with utility payments or other priority debts (not including rent payments).

All BHA residents are eligible to apply for funding. Grants are limited and residents must be willing to undergo an income assessment with BHA staff.

Get into Dance

Barnsbury Housing Association have developed a partnership with Sadler’s Wells Theatre, Islington that welcomes people of all ages and backgrounds to come, see and take part in dance. From hip hop to tango, ballet to circus, you’ll love it all!

Their new scheme has been designed to encourage residents to visit for the first time. All tickets via the scheme are priced at £3 and from the moment you join, you can book up to 16 tickets per year! So they could provide you with an opportunity to spend quality time with your family and friends.

If you would like to see one of their shows please contact Mary at mary@barnsbury.org or call us.
