Loreburn’s Vision is “Creating great places to live” and our Mission is "Working Together".

Loreburn is regulated by the Scottish Housing Regulator. The Regulator governs all Registered Social Landlords and local authority housing providers in Scotland.

The primary activity of Loreburn is housing and property management. Loreburn currently manages over 2,500 homes throughout Dumfries & Galloway.

Loreburn provides Supported Accommodation throughout Dumfries & Galloway for people who are vulnerable or require additional care and attention. Our dedicated team, Loreburn Housing Support Service (LHSS), has been providing excellent support for over 25 years, enhancing the health and well being of our customers.

Our Supported Accommodation falls under three main categories;

Older People’s Services
  Young People’s Services
  Supported Living Tenancies

Older Person’s Services are housed within our Sheltered Developments in Annan, Dumfries, Wigtown, Castle Douglas and Stranraer. They provide accommodation for people aged 60 and over and allow for customers to remain independent with professional help at hand if required.
Young People’s Services are located in two main sites, one in Dumfries and one in Stranraer. They provide accommodation for young people aged between 16 and 25 who are homeless or threatened with homelessness. Our LHSS Advisors offer guidance and support in developing confidence and enhancing valuable life skills.

Supported Living Tenancies are available in a number of properties across Dumfries & Galloway and are specifically for accommodating individuals with complex needs. They are designed to provide up to 24 hour care and support and generally have a staff base on site, housing a range of support providers.

Our Vision is to create great places to live in Dumfries & Galloway. In order to achieve our Vision and Mission, we listened to our colleagues, customers and stakeholders and created the following set of corporate aims which are linked to our Vision.

Current opportunity

You'll be based in one of our later living developments throughout the region. Whether it's running an activities session or pushing wheelchairs on a day trip, our all-rounder volunteers need to be willing to get stuck in. From helping to host a coffee morning to something a little more energetic, you'll be playing a key role in creating better communities and helping to enrich the lives of our later living customers. Activities can vary from boules and skittles, dancing or singing, or coming up with your own to get people moving. All the while, you'll be helping our customers to feel welcome and ensuring that everyone can take part. Due to the diversity of the role, we can promise you that no two days volunteering with us will be alike. You'll be assisting across all areas of our Later Living service and you'll provide a friendly and familiar face for our customers. All we ask is that you bring a positive mindset, plenty of enthusiasm and never turn down the chance to have a chat! Our all-rounder volunteer role offers you the opportunity to give something back to the community and to be part of a fantastic group of people providing support, skills, knowledge, friendship and being part of something special. This is a fun and rewarding role which will enable you to connect with our customers and make a real, lasting difference to their lives.
