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.
The Scottish Social Housing Charter
Incorporating our Annual Report for 2013/14
The Scottish Social Housing Charter became effective in April 2012, following approval by the Scottish Parliament. The Charter, which aims to improve the quality of services provided by all social landlords operating in Scotland, requires each landlord to produce a report annually, outlining their performance in relation to the Charter outcomes. Williamsburgh H.A. submitted its first return on the Charter in May 2014. Our Report on how W.H.A. performed in 2013/14 can be accessed by clicking here.
For your information, a full copy of Williamsburgh H.A.'s accounts can be accessed by clicking here. A full copy of the accounts of our subsidiary, Williamsburgh Property Services, are available here.
The Scottish Social Housing Regulator issued the first landlord report for every Scottish social landlord in August 2014, at the same time making 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
