Social Bite Village

The Social Bite Village is an innovative, highly supported community for people affected by homelessness. The purpose of the Village is to offer the right support, living environment and opportunities for someone from a situation of homelessness to build an independent life.

The Village is made up of 10 ‘NestHouses’ – each shared by two residents plus an additional unit for staff. There is also a large, central Community Hub, which is the focus of community life – where residents can cook, eat and socialise together. The Hub is also the base for much of our training and support activities. Since its launch in 2018 the village has helped over 75 people out of homelessness.

Housing First

‘Housing First’ is simple and it aims to turn the existing homelessness system on its head. Rather than making extremely vulnerable people, often with complex needs, sleep rough or in unsupported places such as hostels or B&Bs, Housing First gives people a safe home of their own and then puts in a place a support structure to help them sustain their tenancy, re-integrate into society; and ultimately thrive. Housing First is a truly transformative programme that provides a human-centred, kind and compassionate response to the systemic issue of homelessness.

The Housing First Scotland programme is delivered in partnership with Social Bite, The Scottish Government, Corra Foundation and Homeless Network Scotland. Since the program started in April 2019, over 1000 people now in a permanent home of their own.
