History if Arklet Housing Association
Arklet Housing Association evolved from its beginnings as a small specialist housing association, first registered with The Housing Corporation in 1967. The early stock portfolio was based on tenement flats, providing accommodation and support to a small community across Glasgow's South side
The early services were extended to consider a more general range of communities, minority groups and specific support needs including mental health and learning disabilities.

Arklet Housing Association now manages an asset base of 399 properties, supporting 374 tenants, 10 sharing owners, 11 leaseholders and 42 factored owners with an annual turnover in the region of £3m.
