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.
WHA Needs You
As with all housing associations in Scotland, WHA is run by a Committee of Management, made up primarily of local residents. Although the Association has professional staff, who are responsible for its operation on a day to day basis, we rely on local volunteers, to work with us in setting the Association’s future direction and ensuring the quality of the services we deliver to our residents.
Have you ever considered that this might be a role for you?
We are offering an opportunity for interested people to join our Management Committee. The Committee has overall responsibility for the governance of the organisation, setting the strategic direction of Williamsburgh HA and ensuring that we maintain a high quality service to our customers.
We are looking for volunteers from a variety of backgrounds and a wide range of skills and experience, including community development, housing management and the voluntary sector. More importantly, however, we are looking for people who want to make a positive contribution.
This is a great opportunity and we want to hear from you.

The Scottish Social Housing Charter
Annual Report 2014/15
The Scottish Social Housing Charter became effective in April 2012. The Charter aims to improve the quality of services provided by all social landlords operating in Scotland. Following their analysis of the required performance information, the Scottish Housing Regulator has issued a Landlord Report relating to every Scottish social landlord.
The Regulator has made available a national online comparison tool which gives both tenants and landlords a wide range of easily accessible performance information. This tool can be accessed at www.scottishhousingregulator.gov.uk
In addition, the Regulator requires each landlord to produce a report annually, outlining their performance in relation to the Charter outcomes.
