Following the success of Housing Options Scotland’s summer tour last year, the organisation will be hitting the road again to provide housing information and advice events for disabled people, older people, disabled veterans and those who support them.

Just like last year, the organisation will be focusing on more rural areas of Scotland, where these groups find it much harder to access the information and support they need. But this year is going to be bigger and better.

At these free drop in events, people will get the opportunity to speak to Housing Options Scotland staff about their housing issues and get advice, listen to talks about housing that will be repeated throughout the day, while enjoying a nice cup of tea or coffee.

There will also be information stalls from local and national organisation who work with disabled people and older people, who will be on hand to give information about who they are and how they can help.

Housing Options Scotland will be by the sea, in the hills and on the islands at the following locations:

July 11 Arbroath, Community Centre, Marketgate, Arbroath, DD11 1AT 10–3

Housing Options Scotland’s CEO Moira Bayne said: “We are delighted to be able to provide these events across Scotland to help disabled people, older people and disabled veterans find the right home in the right place for their needs. We know that finding suitable housing can be a very difficult journey, so our expert staff and volunteers will be on hand to help every step of the way.”
