“I found Housing Options Scotland very supportive, I was really at that stage where I didn’t know if I could cope any more. The organisation helped find me a house that ticked everything off of the list that I wanted for my girls and I. My new home has completely exceeded my expectations, I love the area, the neighbours are lovely and we’ve got everything around us we need. Housing Options Scotland were absolutely amazing, they were up to date with everything to do with housing and I couldn’t recommend the service more.” – Gina Wilson

“The HOS team explained what we were trying to achieve together and what steps we’d need to take to achieve it. Alex was very much the centre of the conversation and involved in everything. Now Alex is moved, the improvement in his mental health has been brilliant– just to have his own space and to be able to go outside has been immense.”  –  Joan Walsh

Homeless Housing Options is a new project run by Housing Options Scotland. Funded by the Scottish Government’s Third Sector Homelessness Fund, the project offers advice, information and support to disabled people, older people and members of the Armed Forces community who are facing homelessness.

We directly intervene to prevent a crisis in housing for those who are homeless or at risk of homelessness by addressing their specific needs and finding housing solutions.

We enable the voices of our clients by sharing their experiences, the problems they face and the solutions to these, through our wide-ranging engagement programme.

“Housing Options Scotland have really been brilliant. I would recommend them to anyone. If it hadn’t been for HOS, I don’t know where I would have ended up.” Sandra Stuart

HOS Helps is our tenancy support service. We work with landlords to help tenants on a range of issues, all with a view to supporting them to maintain their tenancy. From offering mental health and occupational therapy support, to helping with money advice and sourcing white goods and furniture, the service is a one-stop-shop for residents who need additional support. Our approach is flexible and person-centred, and – just like with our regular service – we tailor the support we offer to each individual who gets in touch. We are happy to take on work supporting landlords on a one off, time limited or ongoing basis. For more information, please contact heather@housingoptionsscotland.org.uk

“I can’t speak highly enough about the HOS Helps service. I think you do a phenomenal job – you have more than met our expectations and made a real difference to a number of our tenants’ lives. There’s plenty of evidence to say that HOS Helps have made an impact; not just in what you have been asked to do, but in the way that you have done it – valuing and treating people with respect. The service is a great example of a 3rd sector organisation utilising its unique abilities the deliver the best outcomes and interventions for tenants” – Feedback from Housing Association
