This strategic appointment aligns with Home in Scotland’s core mission to construct homes, foster independence and aspirations, and uphold its customer promise of facilitating better and easier lives.

Bryony Willett brings with her a wealth of experience in the social housing sector from both Scotland and England. Currently serving as the chief executive of Maryhill Housing Association, Bryony has made significant strides during her seven-year tenure with the Glasgow-based housing association, successfully securing support and funding for three major regeneration schemes.

“In the years ahead, there are several critical tasks that lie before us, including the imperative to build appropriate homes in suitable locations, enhance and upgrade existing homes to meet our net zero targets, and sustain our efforts to support communities. Nevertheless, as evidenced by the accomplishments of the past year, Home in Scotland is well-positioned to achieve these objectives.”

Susan Deacon, the chair of Home in Scotland, also expressed her delight at Bryony Willett’s appointment as the new director.
