Who we are

We provide accommodation for both families and individuals with particular needs and have an ongoing development programme for new-build housing and refurbishment.

There are around 250 registered housing associations operating in Scotland.

The term "registered", when used about a housing association, indicates that it has been formally accepted by the Scottish Government as having standards and aims which are acceptable to them, and is therefore eligible for funding for the construction and improvement of housing.

We are funded by rents and through a combination of Grant Aid from the Scottish Government and private finance raised from building societies, banks and other sources.

Where we have properties

We have 809 homes across the Lorn area and the inner Hebridean islands, a fairly widespread area which presents many challenges in terms of providing affordable housing and ensuring the provision of a quality housing management and technical service.
