We are a not-for-profit charity whose mission is simple – to make affordable housing more accessible to more people in need of a home of their own. Across Scotland, we provide vital accommodation and landlord services, helping to foster genuine local communities that don’t just improve where people live, but how they live too.

Cairn Housing Association has for over 30 years served a wide variety of communities throughout Scotland offering a range of affordable housing and related services.

As a main provider of housing across Scotland we aim to meet local housing demand, nationwide. We strive to put the customer at the heart of all we do in delivering excellent service.

With over 3,500 homes under management and offices in Edinburgh, Inverness, Glasgow, Coatbridge and Thurso, we address housing needs of people in both urban and rural areas, including older people and those who need specialised support.

We believe that local access to housing management is essential and intend to retain a local presence in areas where we take on new tenant responsibilities. Our aim, in partnership with the Scottish Government, local authorities and others, is to create strong sustainable communities by improving access to and choice in affordable housing and services.
