Business overview



Castle Rock Edinvar is one of Scotland's leading housing associations and a Scottish Charity.

We are the fifth largest housing association in Scotland and operate across nine local authority areas. We work closely with a subsidiary company to achieve our vision.

Our vision is creating places that work for everyone

Our Vision is underpinned by six strategic pillars which together contribute to delivering our social purpose. These are:

  • Placemaking - places that work for everyone
  • Innovating - creatively finding the right solutions
  • Partnering - working together for shared success
  • Investing - sustaining places and people
  • Respecting - creating a sense of belonging
  • Wellbeing - enabling people and communities to live their lives equitably

Regulation, performance and financial reports

We're regulated by the Scottish Housing Regulator. You can access all the information SHR has on us, such as the new landlord reports, our full Charter return and how our performance compares to others.

The Scottish Housing Regulator has a guide on how they regulate "How we regulate: A guide for tenants and service users". There are also videos about who we are and what we do and how to raise a concern about a social landlord.
