Paragon Housing Association Limited is a Registered Social Landlord operating in the Forth Valley area. We are a "not for profit organisation" and most of our income is used for the management, maintenance and improvement of our properties (over 1400 units) which are located in the Clackmannanshire, Falkirk and Stirling local authority areas.
We were initially established in 1998 through a transfer of housing stock from Scottish Homes. We provide homes at social rent levels and our tenants may be eligible for assistance with meeting their rental payments through housing benefits or universal credit. We have a programme of planned maintenance and improvement to ensure our housing stock is kept in good condition and meets the needs of our tenants.
We hold our own waiting list for prospective tenants and assist local authorities in meeting the local demand for housing by accepting nominations for vacant properties from their waiting lists.
Membership of the Association is open to all tenants and people who can contribute to meeting the aims of the organisation. We have around 130 members currently and it only costs £1.00 to join for life. We have a professional staff of 26 people and the Association is run by a volunteer management committee. We strongly encourage tenants to become members of the Managment Committee and offer support to people taking up this role.
The Association is a member of Scottish Federation of Housing Associations, Employers in Voluntary Housing and SHARE, which is an organisation which provides training to housing professionals and volunteers.
