Description

If you have a mental health condition and need somewhere to live you may qualify for supported accommodation in one of our Edinburgh flats, if one is available. An experienced mental health support worker will provide you with practical and emotional support to enable you to live unaided in your community. We will provide you with support from one hour a week upwards. We will tailor the support to suit your needs.

We can help you to: 

  • develop your daily living skills such as budgeting and food shopping
  • find training and job opportunities
  • maintain your property, to furnish it and help with other housing management issues
  • build your social network and go out with you to appointments.
Rent would be payable, although most tenants will be eligible for housing benefit.
