The Association has around 150 homes becoming available for re-let each year.

Who can apply for housing
Anyone aged 16 or over may apply to the Association. Our Allocations policy is a Group and Priority system, where applicants are placed in a group and given a prioity based on their housing needs.

If you wish to apply for housing with our Association, you must attend a Housing Options appointment. You can do this by calling 0141 840 5014 to speak with Lesley Forsyth or 0141 840 5019 to speak with Jordan Allan.

Once you have an appointment booked with us you can utilise our 'sit and wait' service if you wish to try and be seen sooner than the date of your appointment. You would require to telephone the office the day you wish to come in (with all your documents as per the confirmation letter you would have received) to check is there are appointments on that day. You would then be able to come to the office and 'sit and wait'. All applicants are given until 10 past the hour to show for their appointment. Is they do not show then it would be possible for you to be seen but this would be on a first come first served basis.

This has been put in place due to a number of people not turning up for appointments.
