Diverse Company Award for Housing Sector
A leading provider of social housing, mainly for older people across Scotland, Trust Housing Association is committed to achieving equality of opportunity in all aspects of their work, valuing the rich diversity of staff, customers and the communities in which they serve. They have over 2,500 households across the length and breadth of Scotland, offering a range of different services from landlord only service to care and support services that are flexible and tailored to meet the needs of the tenant. Seeking to act as a driver for change, Trust Housing Association helps to break down barriers that hold people back whilst providing them with opportunities to succeed. This is done in a number of ways, an example of which would be the successful ‘Job Opportunity Support Project’ which they ran, offering support, training and placement opportunities for individuals from ethnic minority communities seeking job opportunities. At Trust, it is more than just a home; it is a way of life with a sense of belonging.
