We provide housing and support in Dundee, Edinburgh, Angus, Perthshire and Fife, with over 5500 good-quality, well-maintained homes at affordable rents. In each area of operation we have local offices with housing advice teams who can provide an immediate response to our customers.

Sheltered housing gives older people the independence of having their own flat with the security of having an alarm system and a warden.
