Volunteering

Paisley Housing Association have launched a recruitment drive for people willing to help our communities. The aim is to recruit individuals to serve on PHA Board and ultimately make a difference.

We are particularly keen to recruit people who are underrepresented in the housing sector and positively encourage applications from individuals regardless of sex, race, disability, sexual orientation, age or religion or beliefs.

If you are looking for a way to have a voice in the housing sector this opportunity might be for you.

PHA can offer continuing professional development, real life experience for your CV, volunteering with meaning and purpose, networking with professionals and others committed to social impact and ultimately a way of helping improve communities and lives.
You would be welcome to attend one of our meetings as an observer or join our Training Academy.

If you are interested in getting involved, please contact Sandra Marshall on 07735 911 831 or sandra.marshall@paisleyha.org.uk
