About Us

We are a national housing, support and care provider, offering a range of accommodation and support services. And we're very proud of the Trust story.

The Trust story 

Originally called Kirk Care, we were set up in 1973 by members of the Church of Scotland as part of a philanthropic movement, opening our first scheme in Bearsden. 

For more than 40 years, we’ve continued to deliver excellent customer service and care for people, growing into a modern, forward thinking and nationally respected organisation.

Today, we’re one of the largest providers of housing, care and support services in the social rented sector in Scotland.

Our primary purpose is to serve older people in our communities, and we provide and maintain homes for more than 2,500 people across 23 local authority areas - from Stornoway to Stranraer.

Our wide range of services - from landlord-only to care and support - are flexible and tailored to the needs of individuals. This allows our customers to live independently with an enhanced quality of life, and their families to have peace of mind.

We also offer general needs and mid-market rent housing and services to households of all ages. We are innovators in the sector and developed the nationally recognised housing with care model of service delivery and Happy to Translate.

Our customers are at the heart of everything we do and our services are very people focussed. As such, we’re a large employer with over 580 full and part-time staff based across Scotland. Our main office is in Edinburgh, with offices in Glasgow and Arran.
