Housing associations are not-for-profit organisations that own and manage homes controlled by management committees made up of volunteers, including residents.

Regulated by the Scottish Housing Regulator.

 

Able to raise finance through loans from banks and building societies

There are over 2,000 such associations in the UK. Together they account for well over a million homes. Some are registered charities.

 

Housing associations work closely with local councils in order to house people in need and build new homes. Representative organisations for Housing Associations in Scotland include the Scottish Federation of Housing Associations and the Glasgow and West of Scotland Federation of Housing  and the Chartered Institute of Housing. A number of organisations can help those who are in need of a home or who may have special housing problems.

 

Organisations working with the homeless include:

Foyer Federation
Shelter
The Big Issue
Homeless Pages
