CrossReach offers accomodation and support to people who are homeless in Stornoway, Inverness, Glasgow and Edinburgh.

Homelessness is a complex and multi-faceted problem, but one which has received much national attention in recent years. The data gathered through the Rough Sleepers Initiative and the Homelessness Strategy for Scotland has led to a better understanding of what is needed in order to assist people out of homelessness.

Crossreach services work in a way that contributes to the strategic approach within each local area whilst remaining responsive to the needs of individual service users who ofetn have a range of support needs. Crossreach works collaboratively with statutory sector and voluntary sector agencies in order to ensure the best possible care is offered.

Lewis Street  in Stornoway provides housing support (own flats) for the homeless, as well as other service user groups, for up to two years.

In Inverness our largest housing support service Cale House  also provides flats for a period of up to two years. Service users are often admitted from other settings such as hospitals or rehabilitation centres. Service users are required to make a commitment to work towards remaining alcohol and drug free.

Kirkhaven in Glasgow offers  resettlement for homeless people with complex needs. It focuses on those with long-standing addictions and/or mental health problems who, for those reasons, have often been excluded from other homeless provision. Service Usres can stay in Kirkhaven for up to two years.

At Cunningham House in Edinburgh we deliver  housing support in shared living accomodation for up to twelve weeks.

The services are registerd and inspected by SCSWIS (Social Care and Social Work Improvement Scotland). To learn more about each of the individual services, please follow the links at the left side of the page.
