Great Homes, Great People, Vibrant Communities
Formed in 1997, Shire Housing Association was set up to take former “public” housing into local ownership and control in East Ayrshire. We are run by a Management Board which sets our strategic objectives, and employs a staff team to meet these. The Board is made up of members of the local community, and individuals who are committed to seeing the Association flourish.
The Association is a charity providing high quality housing and services. We currently own just under 1000 properties’ for rent, and provide estate services to approximately 1000 owner occupiers. From 1997 to March 2017 we have invested around £12.2m of planned maintenance in our properties. With the support of the Scottish Government and East Ayrshire Council we have also constructed over 200 new homes. We manage and deliver on behalf of East Ayrshire Council the Care and Repair service across East Ayrshire.
Locally based and controlled, we are sensitive to the needs of the communities we serve and we work hard to deliver quality and value. The quality of service we provide has been recognised through Investors in People, and Customer Service Excellence Awards.
