About us

Hillcrest Housing Association was established in 1967 and we are one of Scotland’s largest Housing Associations.

We provide housing and support in Dundee, Edinburgh, Angus, Perthshire and Fife, and we have over 5500 good quality, well maintained homes at affordable rents. In each area of operation we have local offices with housing advice teams who can provide an immediate response to our customers.

As an employer, Hillcrest Housing Association has over 160 staff and was recognised as being in the top 2% of companies receiving Investors in People (IIP) status when we were awarded IIP Gold in 2011.  We were reaccredited IIP Gold in 2013 and in September 2015 we received an Investors in Young People accreditation.

We are more than a traditional housing association. Hillcrest Housing Association is the parent of a group of companies whose objectives are to provide care, social enterprises, skills, training and employment opportunities.
