SFHA - an invaluable resource for remaining up-to-date
A testimonial from Caroline Shepherd - Cernach Housing Association
Here is what Caroline Shepherd, Director of Cernach Housing Association had to say about what we do:
“ We’ve joined SFHA for two reasons. Firstly, it’s an invaluable resource for remaining up-to-date with new and changing legal, regulatory and best practice requirements within the sector, whether via written material from the website or by attending the SFHA forums – our staff very much enjoy participating in the various forums and feel that it makes them more effective in their day-to-day roles. Secondly, and just as importantly, it is surely essential in the current climate that we play our part in ensuring that the sector has a strong, collective voice and that that voice is heard.”
Cernach Housing Association is a Community Based Housing Association operating in the Drumchapel area of Glasgow. The Association is a ‘not for profit’ organisation and a recognised Scottish Charity.
The Association owes its origins to stock transfer. Since the Association’s inception in 1991, they have completed four stock transfers from Glasgow City Council and Glasgow Housing Association and completed thirteen phases of improvement and new build providing mainstream housing for rent, sale and for shared ownership.
The Association provides nearly 820 homes for rent and for shared ownership and a factoring service to 130 owners. Their housing stock is varied and includes new build homes built between 1994 and 2012 and post-war housing stock purchased from Glasgow Housing Association. They have a comprehensive mix of tenement flats, cottage flats, terraced and semi detached housing.
