Blackwood Homes is a member of City of Edinburgh Council's Common Housing Register scheme called EdIndex. This means that we do not accept direct applications for housing in Edinburgh. If you require housing in Edinburgh you can:
We have nominations agreements with local councils for the allocation of a percentage of its housing. This means the local authority is asked to nominate applicants from its own housing list for (usually) every second vacancy we have. We recommend that as well as completing our application form, you also apply to your local council. This will maximise your chances of being housed.
We also have agreements with other agencies such as the Disabled Persons Housing Service and Aspire where we ask them to nominate people for some of our vacant properties.
