Castlehill Housing Trust – new name and new Board members

CHA subsidiary company, Castlehill Housing Trust is celebrating its new name with three new people joining the board. Nicola Shand, Allan Manson and Lyn Cullum are the first people to join the board as Castlehill representatives since the name changed from GCCCT last year. Their appointment takes the Trust to a full complement of Board Directors.

Celebrating the launch of its new name and website, Castlehill Housing Trust chose to introduce the new Board members to Care Provider partners and tenants at an event held at “The Fly Cup” in Inverurie on 14th May 2019.  Working with the staff at “The Fly Cup” made perfect sense, as most Castlehill Housing Trust tenants are adults with learning disabilities and the venue provides employment opportunities within the catering industry for adults with similar disabilities.

“Castlehill Housing Trust uses its expertise in housing to work flexibly with experienced care providers and local authorities to provide a solid base from which an individual’s care can be provided,” said Emma Ozanne Castlehill Housing Trust Manager, “We hope to limit the need for frequent moves and enable those with complex and evolving needs, to live in a place they can call home.”

The new Board Directors bring enormous skills from their professional and personal lives having worked in housing and with those with special needs. The Board can draw on the experience and knowledge of all its members to continue to meet the evolving needs of Castlehill Housing Trust customers.  Nicola, Allan and Lyn are delighted to have been selected and are enthusiastic about the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead.

Castlehill Housing Trust has been a subsidiary of Castlehill Housing Association since 2011, drawing on their well-established expertise in the development of properties across the North East.  Castlehill Housing Association has been instrumental in securing development opportunities and providing expert Housing Management and Property services. Castlehill Housing Trust is committed to growing its portfolio of properties to meet the growing demand within the North East of Scotland.
