Housing Support

About Housing Support

Housing Support enables vulnerable people to continue to live safely and independently in their communities. CHAI Housing Support staff achieve this by working with service users to develop personalised Support Plans, meeting their individual needs and creatively adapting what we deliver to best fit their individual aims and aspirations.

The Housing Support service is a city-wide service. CHAI is part of two homeless prevention  consortiums, one which includes Cyrenians, Penumbra, Cross Reach and Health in Mind, and the other which includes Four Square, Link Living, Penumbra, and Blackwood . Through these consortiums we deliver the service with Edinburgh City Council.. It is possible to self-refer to our service, but the majority of our referrals are now received from Social Workers, health care professionals and homelessness services. Referral forms can be downloaded from our Referrals page.

Service User Engagement
