Who we are

We are a community-controlled housing association and an independent not-for-profit social business.  Operating in the Tollcross, Braidfauld, Lilybank/Newbank and Carmyle areas, we have over 2,200 homes for social rent, and over 590 factored properties.  In 2020, we set up Auchenshuggle Develops, a subsidiary which manages 12 mid-market rented properties.  

Set up in 1974, our original aim was to address slum housing conditions in the pre-1919 tenants in Tollcross.  Today, our aim remains consistent, we want to improve housing conditions for the people who need our services.
