Shire Housing Association has been presented with the Community Award at the 2023 Ayrshire Chamber of Commerce Business Awards.

Following its business plan vision of ‘Great Homes, Great People, Vibrant Communities’, Shire is committed to being more than just a landlord in the 16 communities it serves across East Ayrshire. Its core value of ‘Caring – what matters to you matters to us’ is at the heart of its operation.

As well as investing staff resources to support and help communities with everything from helping provide transport to events to financial inclusion advice, Shire has successfully brought over £1 million of grant funding into the area in the last three years.

Shire’s chair, Simon Roberts, said: “It is wonderful for Shire to be recognised for its work with our communities.  The board are committed to the Association investing in this area and the staff do a great job in delivering our vision.”
