Interested in Joining our Board?

Housing associations in Renfrewshire and East Renfrewshire have launched a recruitment drive for people willing to help their communities. The aim is to recruit individuals to serve on the Boards of housing associations and ultimately make a difference.

A number of housing associations run what’s known as the FLAIR Academy – a FREE training initiative designed to provide all you need to know about what serving with a housing association entails. The reward is that you are involved in the decision-making process on housing and regenerating communities – all part of the inspiring work housing associations undertake.

FLAIR is made up of the following housing providers: Barrhead HA, Bridgewater HA, Ferguslie Park HA, Linstone HA, Paisley HA and Williamsburgh HA.

We are particularly keen to recruit people who are under represented in the housing sector. FLAIR positively encourages applications from individuals regardless of sex, race, disability, sexual orientation, age or religion or beliefs.

If you are looking for a way to have a voice in the housing sector this opportunity might for you.

FLAIR can offer continuing professional development, real life experience for your CV, volunteering with meaning and purpose, networking with professionals and others committed to social impact and ultimately a way of helping improve
communities and lives.

Being part of the FLAIR ACADEMY lasts 9 weeks starting in April and requires around 6 hours per month. All training materials, resources and reasonable expenses are covered.

A copy of the proposed programme starting in April is below. If you want further information, please contact Iain MacLean at
