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.

Your personal data

We keep your data safe, secure and confidential. We only use it to explore your housing options and will only share it if we have your consent.

Once your case is concluded or if we have not heard from you for six months we will destroy all the information you have given us.

We will help those over 55, armed forces veterans and anyone who considers themselves to be disabled (including physical impairment, mental health issues or learning difficulty).

This form asks for information about you, where you live and who you live with. We also need to know where you want to live, why you need to move and the money you have.

If you find forms difficult or need a different format please let us know. We’ll find other ways to help. Call 0131 2471400, or email us at

When we have this information we will start looking at the options you have. One of our housing brokers will help you to find the right home in the right place.

It normally takes us about four weeks to get in touch with you. We’ll let you know if it’s going to take any longer.

Our promise.
