EVH is fast approaching 40 – and is Scotland’s leading provider of employment services. Despite its advancing years it remains more back office than backache in its support for social employers.

EVH is a unique organisation and members joining us benefit from a variety of services, advice and support. We do this as a fully volunteer-led organisation ourselves.

Scottish Federations of Housing Associations
The SFHA is the national voice and advocate of Scotland’s housing associations and co-operatives. We promote the work of housing associations and co-operatives across Scotland, who provide housing for around 280,000 households.
Established in 1975, the SFHA is owned by its membership.
Our members own or manage rented housing in our urban and rural areas and develop affordable housing for rent and for part-ownership, using public and private finance.
Housing associations and co-operatives are more than landlords, providing care and support to their tenants, undertaking regeneration activity, and catering for specialist needs amongst the elderly and others.
The SFHA also has over 200 commercial associates.
