How We Work

Our objectives are:

  • To provide high quality affordable housing, and an efficient, responsive and personal housing management and maintenance service.
  • To provide appropriate support services to sustain independence and quality of life.
  • To contribute towards sustaining rural communities through providing housing, associated employment and using local maintenance contractors

Castlehill Housing Association is a registered charitable organisation, established in 1970. We have a long, successful track record in the provision of housing and associated support services. Our current housing stock includes general needs properties, amenity, sheltered and very sheltered housing. We operate across three Local Authority areas; Aberdeen City, Aberdeenshire and Moray. The bulk of our stock is for affordable rent but we also have a number of shared ownership properties. We currently own and manage and factor over 1950 properties and over 10,000 households are registered with us seeking housing.

Through our subsidiary, Castlehill Housing Trust, we provide specially designed housing for people with particular needs.  In 2011, we established a non-registered, non-charitable subsidiary, Castlehill Solutions, to enable us to carry out activities that complement our core objectives but were unable to as a charitable organisation. Castlehill Solutions leases properties from Castlehill Housing Association to provide Mid Market Rent tenancies. These properties are advertised via the Let’s Choose website.

In addition to our core activities as a registered social landlord, CHA also manages Aberdeen Care & Repair, undertaking a range of services for older and disabled people throughout the City.

Like all registered social landlords,  we are monitored by the Scottish Housing Regulator

Some of the services (e.g. Key Project and Care and Repair) we provide for our tenants and others are funded, at least in part, by the local authorities we work with.

Although a registered charity, CHA does not undertake charitable fundraising or accept donations. The only exception to this would be for specific funds such as our Care and Repair group charitable fund, where donations from both charitable trusts and individuals help to support some individual clients.

Your Guide To Your Tenancy

We’ve created a handbook with the help of tenants, for tenants. It has been designed as a guide to refer to at the start, during and at the end of your tenancy.
