Housing and Community Support

The Housing and Community Support Service helps people live independently, whether in their own tenancies, in shared accommodation, or living at home.


This can be anything from a few hours support a week to 24/7 care and support. We work with people who live anywhere in Edinburgh, the Lothians and Falkirk areas.

Children and Adults in Transition Support

Support that is shaped around each child or young person to help you achieve your goals and wishes. This can include all aspects of day to day life, such as support with personal care, support at school / college, building skills and independence (like looking after money, travel, interests and hobbies), support with friendships and family, time away from home, and many other things you might want or need support with.

Day Service Support

Fun activities take place at our hubs 9am-3pm – Gilmerton, Bellevue, Drylaw and Newington, and at various locations which will involve travel on public transport.

The Portobello social hub is available as a drop in for anyone in The Action Group every day (within the operating hours)

Playscheme - School Holidays

We can offer practical support to families, whether in the form of respite breaks/ holidays for your child, as everyone needs a break sometimes. We also offer practical help at busy times, such as your child getting ready for school. We also have advice services that can help families understand their benefit entitlements and rights under the law.

Children Groups

We run various different groups in each local area.  These include groups based around specific interests (like a gaming group, or a girls group) and more general groups for fun, friendship and great activities.  They offer a place to hang out, meet other children or young people and try new things with staff support. We involve you in deciding what groups do and when they happen: again we work in partnership with you.

Hear Me

Since starting with a small amount of funding from the Hospital Saturday fund, in late January 2020, the HearMe Counselling service has successfully established itself as a consistent source of quality therapeutic support for people who use The Action Group services.

Digital Service

Since the beginning of the pandemic, we wanted to make sure some of the people who could not get support due to Covid could engage on activities while staying safe at home and have things to do and interact while we were all in lockdown. The Action Group's activities website provides a safe space for interactive sessions.
