Recognition for the local landlord

Debates about our current housing crisis usually end up with everyone agreeing on one thing – we need more high quality affordable housing. What we can’t agree on is how or who is best placed to deliver it. One group of housing providers that have felt marginalised by government policy in recent years are the community controlled housing associations and cooperatives. Their voice may not be as loud as the big national housing interests but they continue to plug away, producing fantastic results for their tenants. Here’s just another example from the east end of Glasgow.

Easthall Park Housing Cooperative

Easthall Park Housing Co-operative is delighted to have achieved the unique platinum Investor in People award.

The Investors in People standard explores practices and outcomes within an organisation under three performance headings: leading, supporting and improving.

Mary Davidson, Chairperson of Easthall Park Housing Co-operative, commented:

“We are extremely proud to be the first Community Based Housing Organisation in Scotland to receive the investors in people platinum award.  It is a great testimony that our Co-operative is viewed as an organisation that leads and inspires our people, have people that live our values, have a culture of trust and ownership with a managed performance framework that allows our committee and staff to deliver sustainable success for the community which we serve.”


John McMorrow, Director added;

“I am extremely proud and pleased to be working with a dedicated team of people who really make the difference for our community.  This unique award testifies how hard they all work with everyone going beyond their day to day duties so that our community gets the best service possible.”
