About Us

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. 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. 


It provides and manages 427 fully tenanted units of rental accommodation with more than 400 tenants and delivers care and support to over 2650 customers across Dorset. The recent Care Quality Commission (CQC) Inspection Report classified East Boro’s Domiciliary Care Service as GOOD in all areas.


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 so through highly successful initiatives such as Handy Man Repair Service and Always Help At Hand Service. East Boro also continued to deliver the Emergency Hamper Service on behalf of Dorset County Council. On average each year we deliver over 800 hampers. Each hamper costs on average £22 and provides, not only vital supplies for the family, but also support when they are feeling at their lowest.



East Boro’s Head Office is located in the heart of the beautiful Dorset market town of Wimborne. Faulkner House in West Street houses the organisations main administrative departments along with Finance, Human Resources, Housing and Maintenance. Wimborne is the organisation’s spiritual home, having been founded there in 1963, but it’s not the only place you will find East Boro.


Having expanded at pace into South and West Dorset in recent years, the company now boasts a regional office in the seaside resort of Weymouth. Located in The Waverley Community Hub, 121 Abbotsbury Road, it houses the Support and Administration staff serving Schemes and Housing in both Weymouth and Dorchester.
