Ardenglen manages nearly 1000 homes and over the past 20 years has invested nearly Â£50m in transforming the housing, local environment and living conditions of our community in east Castlemilk, on the south-side of Glasgow.
Although we have contributed to the successful physical regeneration of East Castlemilk, our area is still ranked in the top 5% âmost deprivedâ in Scotland (SIMD 2016). Our mission statement, âInvesting in our Communityâ is our statement of intent that that we are not only concerned with providing and managing houses but in supporting and developing our community. As the only organisation that works exclusively in our local area, we are ideally placed to adopt a âcommunity anchorâ role to deliver long term sustainable change.
Our Regeneration work therefore forms a central part of our business, aims to fill gaps in services and addresses issues raised by our residents. The range of activities we undertake is determined by local people and builds upon the strong sense of community that exists. Our programmes are designed to gently encourage participation, support integration and maintain tenancies which all contribute towards creating a sustainable and thriving community.
