Where it all started...

Prospect began in 1988, when 8 local people came together and decided they wanted to build new quality houses in Wester Hailes and that's exactly what they did.  Have a look at our film celebrating our 30 years. 


Prospect now have almost 900 homes in Wester Hailes.  These homes are a mixture of flats and houses in both new and refurbished estates.  We are a non-profit making charitable registered social landlord.  We are registered with the Scottish Housing Regulator.

Our Management Committee

The Management Committee is made up entirely of unpaid volunteers, some of which are Prospect tenants.  Many of the Management Committee are residents of Wester Hailes and all are committed to the work that Prospect does.

Our Staff

Prospect employs 30 staff members, with 22 of these based in our office and 8 working within our housing developments.

Our Partners

Partnership working is central to what we do.  We choose to develop projects working through local organisations to benefit our tenants and community.  We have close links with a wide variety of local voluntary sector organisations.  We also work closely with the City of Edinburgh Council and other Housing Associations.

Vision and Values

Our Vision Statement is 'Providing homes and building communities together'.

Our Values are:

  • Pioneering
  • Reliability
  • Listening
  • Fairness
  • Partnership
