Homeless village to be built in Edinburgh
Scotland’s first village for homeless people is to be built in Edinburgh next year.
Social Bite said 10 homes would be built in Granton to provide a low cost, safe environment for up to 20 people.
The social enterprise said it wanted to create a model to end the “vicious cycle” of homelessness.
Work on the village is expected to begin in early 2017, with the first residents expected to move into their homes by the summer.
Social Bite is working with EDI Group, City of Edinburgh Council and other homelessness charities on the project.
