About Barrhead Housing

We are a charity and registered social landlord based in Barrhead. We provide high quality, affordable homes within thriving communities in East Renfrewshire.

Barrhead Housing was set up in 1986. The initial aim was to improve tenement properties in Barrhead. Soon after achieving that, we started building houses for social rent. Since then, we’ve worked hard to maintain those homes and build even more to meet people’s needs. 

Today we have over 1,000 homes which are mostly in Barrhead. We also have homes in Neilston, Thornliebank and Newton Mearns.

What we do

We have a wide range of properties. We have various sizes, from bedsits to four-bedroom houses. And different types, from sandstone tenements to brand new homes. We also have sheltered housing for older people. Here they can spend time together in communal areas and get help from our Housing Support Assistant.

How we work

Our Governing Board has twelve local people and professionals. They are elected at the annual general meeting to represent members. The Board meets every two months. It provides strategic direction and helps ensure management are making good decisions. Learn more about our Board here.

We have a team of thirty employees who carry out our day-to-day operations. As a team, we care about making a positive difference in our community. Get to know our team here.

We dedicate ourselves to providing a personal service. We get to know our customers as individuals. That’s why we make it a priority to visit customers in their homes and around our estates. It is always our aim to respect all customers from any background or circumstances. 

We are always looking for ways to improve our services. We want to make a positive impact on customers and the wider community. Whether you are a customer, community member or part of a local group, we would love for you to get involved. Follow us on social media to hear about opportunities or get involved
