The Easterhouse Housing and Regeneration Housing Alliance (EHRA) welcomed a delegation from the Scottish Housing Regulator and the Scottish Federation of Housing Associations (SFHA) last week for a tour of Greater Easterhouse.
Committee members provided information on the history of Greater Easterhouse and EHRA and explained the role of local voluntary committee members in the delivery of the successful regeneration of the area.
The EHRA tour visited all eight organisations in Greater Easterhouse and the areas regenerated by the private sector. EHRA members explained the partnership approach that EHRA promotes, including joint training, sharing services, organising Hustings, appointment of consultants and support for staff and committee. In total EHRA has 90 Committee members elected from 1,710 members and owns 4,533 rented homes.
Calvay Housing Association hosted a lunch and Colin Cameron, chair of EHRA, and Linda Cameron, vice chair of EHRA, highlighted the challenges that face Greater Easterhouse in the future and the work that EHRA is taking to challenge poverty.
The delegation included the chairperson and Board members from the Scottish Housing Regulator, chief executive and Board members of the SFHA and Councillor McLean from Glasgow City Council.
