Kingdom Housing Association is a not-for-profit organisation[1] which works throughout East Central Scotland to provide housing[2] for single people, families, older people and people who have special needs.[3]

Overview[edit]

Kingdom Housing Association and its wholly owned subsidiary, Kingdom Initiatives Limited, is owned by The Kingdom Group.[citation needed]

Kingdom is the largest housing association in Fife with 3,500 houses and a staff of 300. It acts as a developer for smaller housing associations.[citation needed] It is an active member of the Fife Alliance of Housing Associations, which serves Fife, Glen and Ore Valley housing associations.[citation needed]

It works with Fife Works to provide training and employment opportunities for residents and provides a care and support service to assist vulnerable people to live independently in the community.[4]

Environmentally-friendly housing[edit]

In 2012 the Glenrothes-based association partnered with Fife Council to develop a Housing Innovation Showcase in Dunfermline which trialled modern, environmentally friendly buildings that were easy to heat.[5][6] The project was awarded with an award from the Vision in Business for the Environment in Scotland and a Green Apple award.[citation needed]
