We are the lead Charity housing disabled ex-Service personnel in Scotland. We have 638 houses in 76 locations throughout Scotland.


We have housed 94 severely wounded soldiers from the Afghanistan and Iraq conflicts in the past three years.

Our Houses for Heroes Appeal, launched in 2008, aims to build 60 new houses. It has so far built 42 houses with another 5 houses in the process of being built in Edinburgh; the site of which was opened by our Patron HM The Queen at a very special event in July 2015 which marked our centenary.



“I was one of the lucky ones. The blast killed two of the best Marines in 42 Commando and also killed our Afghan interpreter. Life since then has revolved around the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham and rehabilitation at Headley Court. A life-changing incident like that means I have to rethink everything. The first thing that goes is your independence and the great thing about being offered a house from the Scottish Veterans’ Garden City Association (Houses for Heroes) is that you immediately get your independence back. I now have a place that I can call my own. I couldn’t be more grateful.”

Lance Corporal John ‘JJ’ Chalmers (late Royal Marines Reserve)
