Supported Housing

We work in partnership with support providers in Edinburgh and Fife in order to supply housing for tenants who require support to sustain a tenancy in the community. Each project is subject to separate Allocations policies and therefore anyone interested in this type of accommodation should contact us in the first instance for further advice.

Garages

We also have a very small number of garages to let. To find out if we have any available please speak to our Housing team on 0131 668 4247.
