by Bethany Christian Trust Claimed ( Housing and Homelessness )
Our Emergency Resettlement Unit is called Bethany House. It accommodates 24 men and 4 women in 6 cluster flats.
There are 4 five-bedroom flats and 2 four-bedroom flats. Each resident has a single lockable bedroom and shares a living room, bathroom and kitchen.
Meals are provided from the central kitchen and served in the communal dining room. Residents are encouraged to get involved with the preparation and serving of lunch, and have a responsibility for participating in kitchen duty.
Who can apply?
Prospective residents must be over 16, and homeless either through having no secure tenancy, or where their home/tenancy is deemed to be an unsafe environment. They are expected to be able to cope with personal care, and must be willing to claim benefits, register with a local GP, and apply for more permanent housing.
How to apply
Referrals can be only be accepted through Edinburgh City Council. If there are any suitable vacancies available at the time, an interview for later on the same day will be offered. Interview appointments are allocated on a ‘first come, first served’ basis. Bethany House does not operate a waiting list.
