Our Work

Rural Housing Scotland is a national charity which supports community action on rural housing issues, helping develop community led housing initiatives and campaigning to secure more affordable housing in rural Scotland. We undertake a range of activities including:

  • Help communities secure funding for affordable housing from the Rural & Islands Housing Fund and other sources
  • Help communities to find land for affordable housing and support applications to the Scottish Land Fund
  • Investigate new ideas such as mutual home ownership coops
  • Support communities to drive the change that they need and offer advice
  • Ensuring rural communities’ voices are heard nationally
  • Develop new ideas to solve rural housing issues
  • Campaign for a fair share of investment in rural Scotland
  • Help ensure land reform secures land for housing
  • Promote the role of housing in rural regeneration
  • Provide a link between the most remote communities and all levels of government
  • Organise Scotland’s leading Rural Housing Conference
