Housing Organisations

Changes in housing and data protection laws will affect the current Veterans Scotland housing waiting list.  From 1st December, 2017, if you wish to be considered for veterans housing with a military housing charity in Scotland, you will need to contact the following providers of military charity housing.

Any ex-RAF men or women, their widows and widowers who have reached normal retirement age may apply irrespective of whether they are Members of RAFA.

Scottish Veterans' Garden City Housing Association (Incorporated)

SVGCA houses only disabled ex-Service, Police, Fire and Merchant Marine. The qualifying permanent disability need not have been incurred in service and includes chronic illness. Priority is set against those in greatest need.  The estate, located on 74 sites throughout Scotland, consists of 642 houses currently of varying sizes and types, of which the majority are two and three bedroomed houses, some on two floors. Houses are rented for life, do not come up often and consequently, there is a long waiting list.

Housing Options Scotland - Military Matters  

Military Matters is a specialist project within Housing Options Scotland providing an independent housing advice service to serving members of the Armed Forces, veterans and their families.  We offer clients a tailored individual service to review and consider their housing options whether they are already resident in Scotland or are considering living in Scotland in the future. 


Finding the right home in the right place can be a confusing and stressful experience at any time. It can seem harder when you’re planning to leave the armed forces and facing the uncertainty of transition to civilian life.  Having talked to recent service leavers and their families, Housing Options Scotland have pulled together this information for those who may be thinking of leaving the Armed Forces. We also believe it has relevance to serving personnel and their families too, whatever the stage of your career.  If you are thinking of either buying or renting your first home or if you are confused by the number of incentive schemes to help get on the housing ladder, the booklet contains a lot of useful information.
