The transformation of social housing in Scotland’s largest city under Glasgow Housing Association (GHA) has boosted the Scottish economy by £2 billion and supported thousands of jobs, a Fraser of Allander Institute report has calculated. The report confirms GHA’s investment programme – the biggest of its kind in Europe – contributed £2 billion to Scotland’s Gross Domestic Product. In addition, it supported an average of 2,425 full-time jobs per year, the equivalent of 36,500 years of full-time employment.’
In 2018-19 alone, the Scottish Government made nearly £10 million available to GHA.
