About Us

East Lothian Housing Association (ELHA) was founded in 1988 with the aim of providing good quality affordable housing within East Lothian, and we achieved charitable status in March 1999. All of our properties are in East Lothian.

As we are a charity we do not operate to make a profit. While our early work was in building new homes for rent, we now own and manage a wide variety of housing:

  • Ex Scottish Homes houses acquired in 1996
  • Over 890 properties built by ELHA (Own Build)
  • Sheltered and Amenity properties for older people
  • Shared Ownership and Low Cost Home Ownership properties
  • Workshop Homes

We are controlled by a Management Committee made up of voluntary, unpaid members who are elected at our Annual General Meeting. Our Management Committee oversees the running of the organisation and is responsible for making decisions on issues such as housing policy and expenditure. Membership of our Management Committee is not restricted to tenants of the Association but is open to anyone with an interest in housing in East Lothian.
