The Housing Pillar

MedalIn Scotland, housing and accommodation for Veterans and their dependants is provided by a number of independent charitable organisations. All of these organisations are members of Veterans Scotland and they work together to provide the best possible service to Veterans and their dependants. All the properties managed by these charities can be accessed using the single Application Form to be found in the Application Area of this website.

Properties range from hostel accommodation for single people to fully adapted houses for disabled Veterans' and their families.

Each of the participating charities qualifying criteria differ and these can range from being registered disabled at one end of the scale, to less stringent criteria at the other.

You can view the towns and cities where Member Charities' properties are situated, and also where properties are currently available by clicking the Properties page.

In the Available tab all the vacant houses can be seen along with a small description of the house, the participating Charities name and, the qualifying criteria for that house.

At no time can Veterans Scotland promise you a house as we only control the Central Housing waiting list on behalf of the participating Charities. 

If you are in URGENT need of housing, Scottish Veterans Residences (SVR) has single, en-suite room accommodation in the Dundee and Edinburgh areas.  Email or Telephone Whitefoord House, Edinburgh 0131 556 6827 or Rosendael, Dundee 01382 477078.

If you wish you can use this link to see other outside Housing Associations that maybe of some help.  If you do make an approach to these external housing agencies could you, in your own interest inform them of your Veterans Status.

Veterans Scotland is committed to increasing the provision of housing services to Veterans and to improving the quality of its members' housing stock. It is doing this by carrying out research to identify the areas where accommodation is most needed and to identify the types of accommodation that are most in demand.
