Chief Executive

Kevin Gray

Kevin joined Veterans Housing Scotland in September 2018, having been the Chief Executive of the Royal British Legion Scotland.

Kevin served for 26 years in the Scots Guards in various roles in Iraq, Northern Ireland, the USA, Canada and Kenya, to name but a few. 

Kevin's role at the helm of Veterans Housing Scotland enables his strategic overview, meticulous planning and management to establish and develop the organisation as Scotland's leading charity providing affordable quality homes for veterans who are disabled.

Kevin is supported by a dedicated and professional team at Central Office who work tirelessly with Property Management Companies and local area volunteers to coordinate the services to maintain quality homes and, when needed, provide an effective solution to the wellbeing and support needs of the Veterans Housing Scotland family.

"The value to others, of what we do at Veterans Housing Scotland can never be underestimated. I believe providing veterans and their families with a home to make their own is one of the critical things that can make a difference in a family's lives. Exciting new priorities have been set for the charity to create a consistent and robust support base for Veterans in need in Scotland.  Veterans Housing Scotland's new drive to ensure its extended family's overall wellbeing and happiness mean that building lives and communities is more important now than it has ever been. 

"I am proud to be part of the leadership of the Veterans Housing Scotland family, particularly at a time when strategic change and policy are being planned and delivered.  Our Team ensures that our veterans and their families receive the very best support when and where needed."


The Central Office Team 

 


Support Team  

The Support Team is led by Stephen Elliot, supported by Margaret and Jennifer.

The Support Team are responsible for the recruitment, training and retention of our support volunteers who provide on the ground assistance to veterans in need.  They liaise alongside our volunteers with local support agencies to ensure specialist support is provided when required and crucially take a keen interest in tenant relationships to maintain harmony in our communities.

The Team will also ensure that the charity's social media channels are appropriately maintained.  Our presence grows with recognition of the enormous part the charity plays in providing affordable homes to veterans and their families and, when required, becomes the conduit for the wellbeing and support requirements for veterans in need. 


Finance Team

Lynne Grant leads the Finance Team.

The Finance Team is responsible for ensuring the sound management of all financial activity of the charity.  They are also pivotal in ensuring the Central Office and its activities are correctly administered.  Tenant rents are managed effectively and provide the crucial financial interface between contractors and Property Management Companies.
