Your Home

Ypeople manages the Your Home visiting support service with our partners from Sacro. This is service, which opened on the 1st of March 2018, has been commissioned through the City of Edinburgh Council. The service is offered in three neighbourhood areas in Edinburgh: the North West, North East and South East. Our partners Sacro compliment the service and offer Early Intervention support via groupwork and mediation in the 3 areas of the city.

Your Home provides support to people aged 16+ who are either transitioning out of homelessness to longer term accommodation or are at risk of becoming homeless.
