Established in Wimborne in 1960, East Boro specialises in housing and support services for the sheltered elderly, adults with learning disabilities and other vulnerable client groups in social housing need.
It provides and manages 370 properties with more than 400 tenants and delivers
care and support to over 550 customers on a daily basis across Dorset. In 2015
alone, East Boro delivered more than 97,000 hours of care.
In recent years East Boro has expanded its services beyond its core tenant base to
people living in their own homes in the wider local community. This they have done through highly successful initiatives such as Handy Van Service, Home from Home Day Respite Care Service and Always Help At Hand Service.
East Boro prides itself on being big enough to cope but small enough to care and
as an accredited Supporting People Support Service Provider and Registered
Domiciliary Care provider, it seeks to provide tenants with more than just a home.
Its customers are its reason for being, and it strives to ensure it involves tenants and
customers alike at the centre of everything it does.
To satisfy our customers everyday is East Boro's mission statement and it's something the organisation strives for in everything it does. East Boro is a charitable, not for profit, social landlord (housing association) registered with the Homes & Community Agency, previously the Housing Corporation.
