OUR VISION

Aberdeenshire Housing Partnership is committed to growth - we exist to provide a range of high quality affordable housing and will work to increase our housing stock and improve and diversify our services through the next five years.

We will do this through a determination to develop excellent services and by working in partnership.


OUR STRATEGIC OBJECTIVES

TENANTS SERVICES
To become one of the best social landlords in the north east.

PROPERTY MANAGEMENT SERVICES
We will maintain and improve our houses to ensure that they remain high quality and desirable homes of choice for our tenants.

BUILDING IN THE COMMUNITY
We will target our investment in partnership with local and national organisations to achieve the common aims of providing high quality homes in well designed schemes that meet the needs of communities now and in the future.

SUSTAINING COMMUNITIES
We will contribute to the well being of individuals and communities in those areas of our operation through both our core services and through our involvement in Wider Action.

INVESTING IN OUR PEOPLE AND SERVICES
We will attract, recruit and retain high quality board and staff members and ensure that they are resourced to achieve the Strategic Plan for the benefit of customers now and in the future.

EMBRACING GROWTH
We will take a rigorous and robust approach to new business opportunities and, at all times, ensure that these will have a positive impact on the communities we serve and the organisation as a whole.

OUR APPROACH

Our way of working:

AHP has achieved a great deal in a short time, we have done this by developing a positive culture, working in partnership and by continually challenging ourselves.

Culture
The culture of an organisation is pivotal to its success, AHP has developed and will protect and develop a culture based on integrity, fairness and commitment to the communities we serve. The underpinning ethos is that the culture permeates everything we do.

Partnership
AHP has an excellent track record of working in partnership and will build on this strength in the future. We work well at strategic and operational level with the local authority and Communities Scotland north and east regional office. We have developed strong links with other housing associations in the north east and wish to establish more collaborative approaches particularly in relation to our development and Wider Action roles.

We are developing our relationships with communities and see new opportunities emerging as our development and Wider Action roles flourish.

Continuous Improvement
A key driver for AHP over the next few years is to improve the services we provide and to secure an improved performance grade from Communities Scotland. A range of improvements have been achieved and the focus on continuous improvement is at the forefront of what we do and how we do it. We will continue to work with Communities Scotland Regulation & Inspection and, through adopting a best value approach, taking account of Performance Standards guidance we will identify and address areas for improvement.
