Who we are

A not for profit organisation and Scottish Charity we are also a Registered Social Landlord. As one of the largest providers of Housing and support services for older people in Scotland with just over 5400 properties and a range of services our customers extend far and wide.

Established in 1971 our core values have not changed over the years.

We would like a Scotland where people of all ages can make their own choices, and are able to lead independent and fulfilling lives. We have a mission to improve the quality of life of older people by offering a diverse range of housing, care and other services.

Our 6 core values:

  • Caring
  • Honesty
  • Equality and Diversity
  • Dignity
  • Inclusion
  • Ambition

 

Governed by a Board of Management and supported by the Senior Management Team we have strong foundations on which to continue for many years to come.
