Easterhouse Housing & Regeneration Alliance launches poverty charter
The Easterhouse Housing & Regeneration Alliance (EHRA) has launched a charter which commits its members to a range of poverty alleviation actions across greater Easterhouse.
The charter was unveiled at a tenants’ conference last week at the FARE building in Easterhouse during which attendees heard from a number of guest speakers.
EHRA is an umbrella organisation that represents the eight community based housing associations and co-operatives that operate in greater Easterhouse.
The members are Blairtummock Housing Association, Calvay Housing Association, Gardeen Housing Association, Easthall Park Housing Co-operative, Lochfield Park Housing Association, Provanhall Housing Association, Ruchazie Housing Association and Wellhouse Housing Association.
Chair Colin Cameron said: “We have rightly been proud of the way we have developed new housing, managed our stock and embraced our wider role across greater Easterhouse.
“In recognition that the job is still not finished and as part of our continuing commitment to improving the wellbeing of all residents, we have adopted a commitment to tackling poverty and improving life chances.
“We at EHRA believe we can put the great back into greater Easterhouse and that the community controlled RSL’s are at the heart of that.”
