As another Covid-19 lockdown begins we are issuing this update on Scottish Veterans Residences (SVR)’s housing support services for Veterans.
Our Residences will remain open and continue to provide accommodation, catering and support for Veterans in need. We will continue to take referrals for support for homeless Veterans through the normal referral pathways. Assessments may be conducted remotely or in person, depending on the individual’s circumstances. We will mitigate the risk of continuing to take referrals by asking the individual Veteran about their health and observing them for relevant symptoms. We are likely to offer accommodation on provision that the individual self-isolates, with our support, in their room or flat for the first 10 days.
We would encourage anyone who is aware of a Veteran in need of accommodation and support to contact us. Self-referrals from Veterans are also welcome.
