About us

ARK Housing Association is a not-for-profit organisation. We have a clear vision and mission that drive everything we do, and our values are rooted in civil and human rights.

Founded in 1977 by a group of Edinburgh parishioners to help a member of their congregation, we now manage over 400 properties across 13 Scottish Local Authorities, and employ over 1000 staff.

"We support people to live good lives, at home and in their community."

Some people require assistance to lead the life of their choice. For over thirty years we have provided community-based care, support and housing for people with learning difficulties and others with complex and enduring needs. We also provide general needs housing.

We believe everyone should have the opportunity to lead a happy, healthy and safe life.
