Organisation aims and objectives

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 1400 properties which are located in the Clackmannanshire, Falkirk and Stirling local authority areas. We were 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. 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.
