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.

You'll get a self-contained unfurnished flat with a lounge, kitchen, bedroom and private bathroom and/or shower. There's a communal lounge for social activities, and family and friends can even stay on site in a guest bedroom. And, because we are regularly inspected by the Care Inspectorate, you can expect the highest standard of quality and care.

We are very happy to arrange visits for prospective residents and their families. To visit the sheltered housing complex or to make an appointment for an assessment of a prospective resident’s care needs, please contact our office on 0131 664 0529.

How to Apply...

If you're aged over 60, you can apply to transfer from your current tenancy. Priority is given to those who need more support and security than their current homes provide. Talk to your housing officer or call 0131 657 0600 for advice from the Lettings and New Tenancy team. They'll tell you about developments in your area and make an appointment for you to look round a home.
