How we provide care and support
Rowan Alba is a different kind of housing organisation. We make lifelong homes for people who have been homeless for many years.
Through a unique blend of Care at Home and Housing Support we create an environment which gives our tenants a full Scottish Tenancy, safety, security and support. We believe this is unique in the UK.
Many of the people who live with us have repeatedly left other housing services and returned to the streets.
Since we opened Thorntree St. in Leith we have rarely had to ask anyone to leave. The skill and compassion of our staff produce a real community that gives our tenants a sense of ownership and belonging. Combined with nutrition, activity and one-to-one support, our residential services have become a place where people thrive, not just survive.
