Established in 1975, Grampian is one of the largest housing associations based in the North East of Scotland. Through direct development and stock transfer, the Association provides services to over 3,000 households.
Our overall strategy is to develop sustainable communities, with a balance of tenure types to meet the housing needs of a wide range of client groups. As well as providing quality affordable homes for rent, the Association participates in Low Cost Home Ownership initiatives including shared ownership and shared equity.
However, Grampian is more than a traditional landlord. The Association provides environmental improvements and regenerates urban and rural communities. In recognition of the link between housing need and other forms of social exclusion Grampian Housing Association also provides money advice and debt counselling, housing support, routes into work, supported employment and training as well as supporting the development of community facilities and social enterprises.
As a landlord, Grampian Housing Association is keen to involve tenants, sharing owners and owner occupiers in its customer participation activities so they can influence how services are designed and delivered and have a say in how the Association is managed.
The scrutiny/inspection and review of housing services by tenants and residents is an important part of performance management and measuring how well Grampian Housing Association is doing. It is now a requirement of the Scottish Housing Regulator.
We have a wide range of options for our customers in Aberdeen, Aberdeenshire and Moray to participate. They can get involved at the level that suits them. It really depends on their interests and how much time they have to spare. The aim of tenant’s involvement is to improve the housing and property management services provided to our tenants/residents now and in the future.
