Welcome to Williamsburgh Housing Association
Williamsburgh Housing Association is a locally-based provider of quality, affordable, rented housing. Initially set up to coordinate the improvement of sub-tolerable tenements situated in the east end of Paisley, the Association's role has developed and expanded. Acknowledged as a significant player in Renfrewshire's strategy to tackle poor housing conditions and provide for those in housing need, the Association's activities now extend beyond Paisley into Johnstone and Renfrew. Working with the local communities, we are involved in regeneration initiatives in these areas.
Office Closure - Monday, 10th March 2014
For the last few months, the Association has been working towards the installation of a new computer system. This has been a massive project which culminates on Monday, 10th March 2014 when our old system is switched off and we go live with our new fully integrated housing and finance system. While we expect to be fully operational as of Tuesday, 11th March 2014, all staff will be employed in the work generated by the switch-over. As such, we require to close the Association's office, for one day, on Monday, 10th March 2014. We hope our customers will understand and that this will not cause too much inconvenience.
We would ask that all general enquiries or routine repairs are reported the following day. Alternatively, messages can be left on the office answering machine (0141 887 8613). Please provide full details, so that these matters can be attended to promptly.
In the event of an emergency, residents can contact us on the following telephone number:
0141 847 6374
While only a temporary disruption to normal working arrangements, we are confident that this investment will lead to long-term benefits for the both the Association and our customers.

Are you interested in the work of our Association?
If the answer is yes we would like to hear from you. We are looking for tenants to give us their views on policies that we are working on. No training is required, only a little of your time to read and review the policies that we will send to you.
If you would like to put your name forward for this, please contact Lesley Ferrie (Housing Manager) on 0141 847 6376, or email
