Gowrie Care Ltd was formed in 2003, and is part of the Hillcrest Group of companies. We were formed following the merger of Gowrie Housing Association, Hillcrest Housing Association and Old Town Housing Association.

People may become homeless for a variety of reasons: job losses, financial hardship, relationship break down or on-going health problems can all contribute to difficulty in maintaining a home. People who experience physical or mental health problems and those with complex needs are particularly at risk if issues are not identified earlier to put preventative support in place.

Gowrie Care provides a range of services to meet the needs of people who are homeless or have experienced homelessness across Edinburgh, Glasgow and Angus. They include short-stay residential services, short-term supported accommodation, medium- to long-stay within accommodation-based services, support into temporary furnished flats as well as outreach housing support.

Some of our services are gender-specific or may cater for people who may have additional and often complex support needs, but all of our services support people to define their own goals and aspirations through person-centered approaches and by providing the practical and emotional support required to sustain longer-term housing solutions.
