The Board CTHA Staff
We provide a range of accommodation with support for tenants with mental illness or a learning disability, encouraging independent living wherever possible.  

Background
Cherry Tree Housing Association was formed November 1975, to provide accommodation for patients who were being discharged from Napsbury Psychiatric Hospital. 

Today, Cherry Tree Housing Association continues to provide accommodation and support services for people with mental illness, and has a mixture of self contained flats and accommodation with shared facilities in south Hertfordshire and the London Borough of Barnet. 

CTHA Today
We currently have a total of 22 properties, with spaces for 74 tenants. Of these, 68 places are for people who can live independently with some support; and, 6 are places for people with learning disabilities. 

Cherry Tree is in the process of using its asset base to fund the development of new homes for its traditional client groups, and also to provide accommodation for single people and couples on a variety of tenures.  
CTHA as a Landlord

Cherry Tree operates like any other landlord regulated with the HCA, aiming at all times to provide an excellent level of customer service, and meet the requirements of the regulator.  


CTHA as a provider of Supported Living Services and Care

For more than 40 years, Cherry Tree has provided accommodation with support. 

We own and manage a block of 6 self contained flats in London Colney, for people who can live independently with support from a dedicated team of staff. 

Cherry Tree’s other properties for tenants who have a mental illness do not have “on site” staff, but management and support are delivered by a Housing Manager, and a small team of Support Workers, who carry out regular visits and deal with any tenancy issues and ensure that tenants receive support where required. 

In 1996, Cherry Tree began to develop accommodation and support services for people with learning disabilities. We currently have two small care homes in St. Albans, which are registered with the CQC.
