Housing association expands by taking on new group

 

Expansion for GHA

Cube Housing Association has formally become part of Glasgow Housing Association (GHA).

Earlier this year, 85.8% of Cube tenants who voted in an independent ballot did so in favour of Cube and GHA coming together within Wheatley Group, as one tenant-led organisation in the city.

Joining forces with GHA paves the way for multi-million pound improvements, the transformation of communities and a stronger tenant voice in the city, a statement said.

GHA managing director Jehan Weerasinghe said: “This really is fantastic news for tenants as it means we can do even more for people living in our communities than we could before.

“As GHA is also part of Wheatley Group, tenants know they will see the same excellent level of services and support. We’ll continue to be there for tenants 24/7, seven days a week, offering personalised support right from day one.”

Cube chair Peter Kelly said: “The Cube board is very proud of what has been achieved with the support and engagement of tenants in recent years to improve homes, communities and the life chances of local people.

"We have absolutely no doubt a new, stronger GHA will be able to go even further in creating “Better Homes, Better Lives, a Better Glasgow.”
