Description

We’re landlords

Formed in 1975, we provide housing and help to people in need throughout Leith and north Edinburgh. We have now invested over £210m in the area and over 4,000 people currently call one of our 2,850 properties ‘home’.
We work closely with our customers to make Leith an even better place to live, work and visit.

We’re developers

Port of Leith Housing Association is actively involved in the regeneration of Leith and north Edinburgh. Since it was established in 1975, the Association has invested more than £192m in the area, using a combination of grant funding from Scottish Government and City of Edinburgh Council, and private finance. In addition to building new homes, Port of Leith is committed to long-term investment in the local community and is engaged in a variety of initiatives.

Our development team delivers a range of housing options and tenures, including homes for social and mid market rent.

We invest in our community

Quay Community Improvements is a social enterprise set up by Port of Leith Housing Association. Profits generated through a range of commercial activities run by the enterprise are being put back into physical, social and economic regeneration opportunities in Leith and surrounding areas.

We help you succeed

Community Works provides assistance to people living in Leith or north Edinburgh who are looking to get into work or find great volunteering opportunities. We particularly welcome enquiries from Port of Leith Housing Association tenants. Our job is to help people realise that there are things that they can do, and to help them identify for themselves what they want to do and get them there.

If you are looking for help yourself please telephone 0131 554 0403 and ask for Community Works or email community.works@polha.co.uk.

The Group’s ambition is to make Leith the best place to be.
