SVR is a Registered Social Landlord which provides high quality, supported accommodation for veterans who are homeless, vulnerable or in need. Our services are open to any Veteran of the UK Armed Forces or Merchant Marines and you do not need to have a Scottish connection.

We provide registered housing support services in a residential setting for veterans of all ages. Our residences are located in Edinburgh, Dundee and Glasgow and can house anyone who has served in the UK Armed Forces or Merchant Marine, from any part of the UK.

Our housing support services are provided at two houses in multiple occupancy Whitefoord House located on Edinburgh's historic Royal Mile and Rosendael situated in Broughty Ferry, Dundee. The third service is the new Bellrock Close transitional support service in Glasgow.

Accommodation in Edinburgh and Dundee is in single, en-suite rooms and the service includes all meals and laundry. In Glasgow the accommodation is in self-contained, fully furnished, one bedroom flats.

Our residences have extensive facilities such as gyms, IT suites, cafes, gardens and games rooms. The service includes:
