Whiteinch and Scotstoun Housing Association has set up a social enterprise company employing six people to handle all its close and back court cleaning and provide concierge services for its sole multi-story block.

Aiming to provide better services to tenants in the area, the new initiative was launched in November. The new social enterprise team will be responsible for cleaning once a week 197 closes, and 205 back courts.

Close cleaning includes brushing and removing all litter and debris from landings and stairs, and a thorough weekly wash. The back court services will ensure that bin stores are cleaned and any bulk uplifts are removed to collection points agreed with the city council.
