About Viewpoint

Viewpoint is uniquely placed. Providing a continuum of care and support as well as accommodation for older people, our services range from mainstream and sheltered housing through to end of life care in care home settings. We are the largest provider of sheltered housing in Edinburgh and with an annual turnover in excess of £15m we have been making a positive difference to the lives of older people since 1947.

Governed by a highly skilled voluntary Board we are registered with the Scottish Housing Regulator (SHR) as a Registered Social Landlord and as a charity with the Office of the Scottish Charities Regulator (OSCR). Our services are also regulated by the Care Inspectorate.

Through living our values and strong team work our 300 staff aim to provide exemplary standards of housing, support and care services.
