About us

We are a not-for-profit charity and registered social landlord.

Read our new Business Plan for 2020-25. This for us is a clear statement of intent which we have taken time to develop and comes on the back of a wide ranging consultation with stakeholders, Board of Management and Management Teams.

It is a bold programme, presented under a new organisational brand and format with vision and mission reviewed and reaffirms the values core to the organisation, as established some 43 years ago.

Founded in 1977 by a group of Edinburgh parishioners to help a member of their congregation, we now manage over 400 properties across 13 Scottish Local Authorities, and employ over 900 staff.
