Supporting Scottish Housing Communities!

Who Are We?

Lintel Trust is an unendowed Scottish Charitable Incorporated Organisation (SCIO) registered with OSCR.

We are led by a voluntary Board of Trustees, made up of individuals with a variety of experience in the Third Sector, housing sector and private sector. We welcome diversity on our Board and always welcome new Trustees, at any stage of their careers.

Originally set up by the Scottish Federation of Housing Associations (SFHA) in 1979, we were originally called Scottish Housing Associations Charitable Trust. We have been supporting Scottish housing sector ever since. 

Many people in social housing face inequality in many forms. We recognise the vital role of housing providers in supporting their communities, enabling and empowering them to participate fully in community life. We believe that community projects run by local people have the power to make huge differences to individuals and groups. 

Our Mission

Lintel Trust provides opportunities for people living in social housing to live fulfilled lives - with our values of participation, empowerment, inclusivity and accountability at the heart of everything we do. 

Our Values

Participation – we participate and contribute to Scottish housing sector

Empowerment – we support activities and projects that empower communities

Inclusivity – our projects and activities are accessible to all, and we make any reasonable adjustments to ensure inclusivity

Accountability – we hold ourselves accountable for all actions
