Argyll Community Housing Association (ACHA) is a Registered Social Landlord providing more than 5000 affordable homes for rent.
We aim to be a modern Landlord of choice in Argyll and Bute by meeting housing need and providing high quality services.
ACHA is a community led organisation directed by a voluntary Board of Management supported by Area Committees. We were granted charitable status in 2011, and are registered with the Office of the Scottish Charity Regulator as a charity (charity number SC042713). We are a not for profit Co-operative and Community benefit Society and everyone with an interest is welcome to become a member. You can find out how on the Get Involved pages.
ACHA's day to day operations are overseen by Alastair MacGregor, Chief Executive, and four directors - you can find out the responsibilities of each on our Senior Management Team page.
We have houses across 11 islands and in every major settlement in Argyll and Bute. We work in partnership with other organisations including Argyll and Bute Council and other Housing Associations. Together we operate HOME Argyll, a Common Housing Register, which lets applicants fill in only one form to apply for a home from any of the Housing Associations.
As well as letting houses ACHA is building new homes, runs a factoring service (Property Factor Registered Number: PF000302) for former council and ACHA homes, provides housing support to tenants and is involved in many Wider Role activities to benefit everyone in Argyll and Bute.
As Scotland’s eighth largest housing association, ACHA houses 17% of the population of Argyll and Bute and employs around 200 staff.
