A direct support and signposting service is offered by V1P for all housing matters for Veterans. We also offer housing advice sessions provided by local housing advice agencies and social housing providers.

Veterans Scotland Housing

Finding somewhere to live when we leave the Services is usually our highest priority.  Most of us find a home to buy or rent, but for some of us, disability or other problems can make the process difficult.  This section is aimed principally at such Veterans and provides access to organisations that aim to make a difficult process easier. 

To simplify things further for those seeking accommodation, four of the organisations work together using the Veterans Scotland Housing Portal which tries to provide the best match between applicants’ needs and available accommodation. Veterans Scotland Housing logo
