Lister has a strong ethos on key values for itself, its Committee, and staff.
- Fairness – treating everyone fairly and without prejudice.
- Equality – being open and accessible for people from all backgrounds and circumstances.
- Honesty – being clear and avoiding untruths or false promises.
- Integrity and Trust – following through on any commitments and undertakings.
Lister’s vision is providing good quality homes for people in need in Central Edinburgh, building the community and enhancing the environment. We wish our residents to live safely and happily in our housing and to lead fulfilling lives, contributing in different ways to life in central Edinburgh.
We are also proud of caring for our wonderful historic housing and seek to preserve and enhance its heritage. We collaborate closely with the City of Edinburgh planners, Edinburgh World Heritage Trust, Historic Environment Scotland, Changeworks and other local amenity and community organisations.
We are very proud to be a social enterprise – providing services for the good of our members and the wider community. We are a member of Edinburgh Social Enterprise and are a fully accredited member of Living Wage Scotland.
