Right Home, Right Place
“I was in a long term rehabilitation hospital and unable to return home to my third floor flat because of the permanent effects of my acquired disability. Housing Options Scotland literally came to my rescue. If it hadn’t been for their help, advice and ultimate longer term support, I wouldn’t have been able to return to work, find a more suitable home to start a new life or remain independent as I am today. I can’t recommend contacting Housing Options Scotland highly enough. Their support is freely available, accurate, friendly and is there for as long as you need it.”
We know that finding a home can be a complicated process, even more so if you have a disability. So, whether you want to rent a home privately, from a housing association or council, you want to buy a home, or you would like to adapt your current home to suit your needs, we can help.

Housing Options for Older People
“Housing Options Scotland gave me hope, from the first time I met them, that there was a way through the web of complexities in moving, to be nearer family. The move has made an immense improvement to my quality of life. I am living in a retirement complex, close to my two daughters. I am more relaxed about everything, and therefore much less likely to have stress related health problems. Housing Options Scotland were always there when I needed them, and came up with the goods. I would definitely contact them if you have housing problems, or are considering making a move.”
As you get older, making sure you have a home that suits your needs is very important. So, whether you are looking to downsize, move nearer to family or your support network, making sure that your current home is adapted to your physical needs or for any other reason, we can help.

“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.”
