Riverside’s services in Scotland looking to expand
Riverside’s Scottish subsidiary, Irvine Housing Association, is in talks with another social housing provider north of the border, in a bid to further improve services to tenants and service users through a partnership agreement.
Discussions with Barony Housing Association are in the early stages and an extensive consultation process will take place with tenants, service users, members and staff to ensure all views are taken into account before any decisions are made.
Preliminary talks between the organisations have revealed a strong culture and values match, alongside opportunities for tenants and service users.
Paul Hillard, Managing Director of Irvine Housing Association, said: “Barony Housing Association is a first-class provider of care and support services. We are excited by the expertise that Barony can bring to Riverside’s operation in Scotland and the potential to enhance the services we currently provide.”
Rebecca Wilson, Chief Executive of Barony Housing Association, said: “We have seen the benefits that being part of Riverside has brought to Irvine Housing Association and its customers. A partnership with Riverside will equip us to effectively respond to on-going challenges and create capacity to develop and continuously improve our business. This will allow us to strive for excellence, invest in innovation and grow to the benefit of our tenants and service users.”
