Cairn is 25 years young and going strong

Cairn 25 picCairn published its 2015 annual report at its recent AGM where chief executive Jason MacGilp celebrated notable highlights from an encouraging year of improved performance and customer satisfaction.

The event also saw Cairn welcome two new board members.

Helen Barton is an experienced social housing practitioner with over 30 years working in the sector, mostly at senior and executive levels and in the north of Scotland. Helen is currently self employed and supporting community groups, public and voluntary organisations with a range of housing, community and social policy related issues.

Moira MacKenzie is the head of development for the Scottish Centre for Telehealth and Telecare and has actively promoted the use of technology enabled care and support services in both her current role and previously as the Scottish Government’s National Telecare programme manager.

Cairn chairperson Ken Ward said: “Helen and Moira join a Board of Management which is focussed on modernisation and high performance. Cairn is changing and our new colleagues will make a big contribution to our new vision of ‘Great homes. Great services. Great people’. We are delighted they have joined our team.”

Cairn also launched a year long celebration for their 25th anniversary of becoming an independent Scottish organisation. Tenants and community groups will be supported by the Cairn Community Fund to develop their own projects and big ideas to make their neighbourhoods great places to live. A short film encouraging tenants to get involved was shown at the AGM and published to Cairn’s Facebook and YouTube pages.

Cairn is looking forward and remain open to conversations about a range of partnerships that might help improve services and drive value for money.
