“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

Living independently for the first time is an exciting prospect, but it can also be daunting. Our Making Moves service is here to support disabled people and their families to make plans for independent living for the first time. We can offer advice and support to help you make that big step. 

If you, or someone you care for, would like our help, get in touch.

“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 Scotland 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
