This year Teachers’ Housing Association celebrates its 50th Anniversary

In 1967 the Central Council of the “Benevolent & Orphan Fund of the National Union of Teachers” decided to establish a housing association in response to concerns about the housing difficulties encountered by many elderly retired teachers. This resulted in the Teachers’ Benevolent Fund Housing Association’s formal registration as an independent housing association on 16 May 1967. Fifty years later THA continues to provide sheltered housing for older people in seven locations around the UK, plus housing for teachers and others in housing need in several London boroughs. Our mission continues to be “housing people in need, particularly those associated with education”. 

A special THA 50th Anniversary Brochure can be viewed via this link.

The Association has properties in the London Boroughs of Bexley, Brent, Croydon, Haringey, Kingston-upon-Thames and Waltham Forest. The properties range in size from studio flats to four bedroom houses.

People working in the field of education in any of these six boroughs are eligible to apply to rent our properties. In addition to our family housing we provide sheltered housing for over 300 retired people in Birmingham, Brighton, Christchurch, Croydon, Hull, Paignton and Stoke-on-Trent.
