Housing

In partnership with LEAP, City of Edinburgh Council will provide supported accommodation to the majority of clients coming to the programme. We know that for many people it is difficult to remain in their normal situation. If considered suitable for the LEAP programme, the next step is a housing assessment. If you have a tenancy, housing staff will try and find a way to help you maintain the rent on this whilst living in sheltered accommodation.

For clients living in stable accommodation, it may be possible to remain there safely. This would normally mean living with a non-using partner or supportive family.
