In the Community

We aim to make a real impact beyond direct housing provision. We work in partnership with our communities, the voluntary and public sectors, and other housing associations to support innovative projects. We seek to add depth to the substantial reputation and core skills of Ayrshire Housing.


Ayrshire Housing has track record of building on its core housing mission. From the very beginning, we have supported construction training, innovative tenancy sustainment as well as arts based community projects.

Recently, we have been successful in securing a second year of People and Communities funding for Bridging the Gap. This is a employment training project with Access to Employment which gives people from our neighbourhoods access to more specialised training.

Our new Building Community Capacity Fund helps smaller groups make a bigger impact in their communities or to develop new initiatives.  We are interested in exploring opportunities to provide practical assistance alongside financial support.

We especially welcome applications which directly involve our tenants, or would at least be of general benefit to tenants or housing applicants. The fund builds on our longstanding support for community activities such as galas, and gardening and sports clubs.
