About us

Berneslai Homes is an arms-length management organisation (ALMO) responsible for managing around 18,000 homes on behalf of Barnsley Council.

We support tenants and work together to create thriving communities. 

We’re responsible for:

  • Managing the waiting list and letting vacant homes
  • Collecting rent
  • Repairs, maintenance, and improvements in homes and on estates
  • Supporting tenants to manage their tenancies
  • Supporting tenants with money issues, jobs, training, and skills, and much more
  • Keeping our estates clean and tidy and dealing with anti-social behaviour (ASB)
  • Engaging with and listening to customers and communities
  • Working with Barnsley Council to build and acquire new homes

As a local authority social housing provider, we have an obligation to deliver services that meet the requirements of the Regulator of Social Housing’s Consumer Standards.
