The EVOC Red Book

The online directory to find third sector Organisations, and their services across Edinburgh


Directory of local groups/projects who are offering specific support during the current COVID-19 pandemic »

In line with Government advice, most groups and organisations in the city have had to take the unfortunate decision to suspend face to face and group work activities. Please telephone or email the contacts listed for the group or organisation if you are interested in their work to check what alternative arrangements might be available or to find out about alternative groups or services in your area.

Each year about 60 Horizon properties become available to rent.

We try to be consistent, fair and open when we decide who should be allocated a home whilst making sure we meet our legal duties to house people from priority groups.

Register with EH - Your Key to Choice (

We advertise available properties in Edinburgh with EH - Your Key to Choice. This is also a choice based lettings system.

To apply for a property you need to register with the EdIndex Common Housing Register. Call 0131 529 5080 for information or to request an application form. Once you have registered, you will be able to search and apply for properties in your preferred area.

Available properties are advertised in the Edinburgh Evening News each Monday and on the EH - Your Key to Choice website (

Register for housing with the local authority

We encourage all applicants to register with the local authority where they want to live. We ask the local authority to nominate applicants to us who have registered their housing need with them. We do this for 50% of our vacancies.

Local authorities are the largest source of rented housing and have legal obligations to provide housing in certain circumstances.
