Garrion People's Housing Co-operative Ltd is a community based Housing Co-operative operating in the Gowthrapple area of Wishaw offering a wide range of housing for rent.

The Co-operative was formed in 1991 with a major programme of refurbishment to the housing stock transferred from Motherwell District Council. Development continued with 3 new house builds in 1996, 1999 and 2009, and CentrePoint , a new community centre for the people of Gowkthrapple was officially opened in May 2011 with multi-purpose meeting rooms.

There has also been the acquisition in 2001 of our sheltered housing development in Overtown and much more in the way of investment and working in the community and with other partners. 

Services are provided from the main offices at CentrePoint, 70 Smith Avenue, Wishaw. Our team of staff are made up jointly from Forgewood Housing Co-operative and Garrion People’s Housing Co-operative. They carry out the day-to-day work of the Co-operative and support the Management Committee. Paul Lennon is Director of the Co-op.


Mission Statement

‘Committed to providing quality homes and services within the heart of the community’


We will be the landlord of choice in our neighbourhood, working with our customers, communities and local stakeholders to create an area where people choose and are happy to live. Great service and value for money will be at our core and we will strive relentlessly to balance both.


The following values will shape how we do business to achieve our mission and the strategic objectives set out in this plan.  They underpin all the work that we do.

Excellence - We are committed to providing a quality, customer focused service that demonstrates value for money, delivered by experienced staff.  We will publicise information on how we are performing, welcoming challenge and feedback to continuously improve the effectiveness and relevance of the service we provide.

Accountability - Our Committee as the governing body and our leadership team will provide strong strategic leadership and oversight, ensuring tenants’ interests are protected and at the forefront of all that we do.  We will ensure that our actions are transparent.

Partnership Working - We will work collaboratively with all sections of the local community.  This includes working collectively and individually with our customers and continuing to share our services with Forgewood Housing Co-operative and other housing associations and statutory voluntary sector partners working in Lanarkshire to improve the lives of our residents.  We will continue to be a proactive member of the local community, seeking out new, innovative ways to address issues that impact our residents.
