We want to be at the heart of our community and have its needs at the heart of all that we do.
Calvay Housing Association (CHA) is based in Barlanark, part of Greater Easterhouse. Calvay is a member of Easterhouse Housing Regeneration Alliance (EHRA).
In early 2018, our long-standing Director left the Association. Following an options appraisal, Calvay decided its best option was to continue as an independent association, and a new permanent Director was appointed in October 2018.
Since then we have put a new business plan in place, and made improvements in how the Association is governed and managed. Over the coming year we will be commissioning a governance review and putting in place further improvements.
We are a medium sized housing association with 825 properties in management. We have a mixture of property types; the original stock acquired from GCC in the 80s, new-build properties and ‘second stage’ transfer properties. Over the next year we have plans to develop approximately sixty additional properties. We also provide factoring services to 105 owners and lease one commercial unit.
Calvay HA is based at the Calvay Centre which is also home to Quarriers charity. The Centre has an IT suite and a hall which is rented out for a variety of activities.

Early Years Scotland is passionate about Scotland’s youngest children having the best possible start in life and we are searching for a very special person to help make that happen. We have an exciting opportunity available for an enthusiastic and motivated individual to work within prisons to facilitate and support young children affected by parental imprisonment. The support is offered through shared play and learning sessions with male and female prisoners, their partners / families and young children.
You will plan, deliver and evaluate play and learning experiences to involve both children and parents, as well as delivering the Early Years Scotland Children Affected by Imprisonment Programme. This programme combines theoretical and experiential learning, all focused around play and learning with young children and highlights the importance of play for young children’s learning and development. You will encourage positive relationships between parents and children through shared play and learning experiences. You will also work closely with the Scottish Prison Service and a wide range of partners to review learning and contribute to the development of future plans.
We welcome applications that demonstrate:
· sound understanding and knowledge of how young children develop and learn
· an ability to build effective relationships with families and have experience of working with parents and families experiencing difficult circumstances
· experience of working with a range of colleagues from other agencies
· excellent communication and organisational skills
· an ability to work on own initiative and also as an effective member of a team
