DPHA was formed in 1977 and registered as a housing association in 1978 in response to the “sub-tolerable” living conditions for the 900 or so tenement residents in Dalmuir. The prospect of improvement through demolition or improvement had become more realistic with the designation of an Action Area in Dalmuir by Clydebank District Council in 1977. A small group of committed residents set the Association on its way to fully improving all houses in the Action Area by 1989.
We operate in the Dalmuir area of West Dunbartonshire where we currently own and manage 689 homes and provide factoring services to 168 owners. This includes 2 sheltered housing complexes and 24 shared ownership homes.
DPHA is registered under the Co-operative and Community Benefit Societies Act 2014, a Scottish Registered Charity and registered with the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA). We have been in existence for 40 years as a Registered Social Landlord (RSL) with the Scottish Housing Regulator. We are also a registered property factor with the Scottish Government.
We are registered with the Care Inspectorate for the provision of support to tenants in our 2 Sheltered Housing Complexes and pre and post school support for up to 70 children per day from our 3 local schools via our Dalmuir Out of School Care Group (DOSCG) project.
DPHA is managed by a Management Committee made up of professionals, tenants and residents.
