RBH Membership LogoMembers

It only takes a moment to sign up as an RBH member.

Please note: this form is for existing tenants and employees of RBH who wish to become a member. If you are looking for a home and would like to register with our HomeChoice service, please visit our Find A Home pages.

Remember: if you are 18 years of age or over and you are an RBH tenant, live with an RBH tenant or work for RBH you can become a member. Membership is what makes Rochdale Boroughwide Housing (RBH) special. RBH is owned by our tenant  and employee members.

This means that our members are shareholders with each member owning one share in RBH in line with the principle of one member – one vote!


If you don't qualify to be a member but you want to attend and have your say at meetings you may be eligible to be an Associate. Associates can access the same opportunities but do not have any voting rights. Associates include:

  • 16 or 17 year olds who will be eligible to be a member once they reach 18
  • Lodgers or leaseholders in an RBH property

To join us as an associate please email
