Shelter Scotland Edinburgh Community Hub

Our Edinburgh Community Hub is a one- stop-shop for anyone who is homeless, facing homelessness or needs advice about a housing related problem.

The Hub offers specialist advice on Housing, Money & Debt, and Welfare Benefits as well as having a team of solicitors who make sure your rights are represented and fairly enforced. Support services are available to help those who require ongoing support. We help and support anyone dealing with issues affecting their ability to find or keep a home.

How to contact

If you need a computer or telephone to resolve a housing, money or debt issue, we can give you free online access daily between the hours of 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. Drop into the hub for more details.

Alternatively browse our advice topics, or speak to someone in our online chat team via the contact us page.
