Homeless Supported Accommodation Service

Homeless Supported Accommodation Service

Moray has two homeless supported accommodation units which are located in Elgin; one at Covesea Road (ages 16-24) and the other at Guildry House (ages 24+).

What does the service offer?

Residential accommodation in a flat-sharing environment with access to staff 24/7 and 365 days of the year. Those using the service will be allocated a key worker who will work in a person-centred way to support them through the challenges that they may face as well as encouraging positive change and decision making. The service aims to offer increased opportunities, reduce isolation, support emotional welfare and gives people a safe and stable space when they need it most.

How does the service work?

Services work with individuals to gain and re-learn independent living skills that will prepare them for living in their own home within the community. Staff will work alongside those using the service to evidence housing needs such as cooking, cleaning, budgeting and shopping; as well as exploring educational/employment prospects, addiction issues, relationships and mental wellbeing.

Who is it aimed at?

Homeless individuals over the age of 16 years old with intensive support needs.

How is the service accessed?

The Moray Accommodation units are direct referral services and accept referrals from the Moray Council Housing/Homelessness Team.
