Social Housing

The Royal Company of Merchants supports the building of social housing in the City through the work of its Frail and Elderly Committee.

In recent years this Committee has developed two social housing projects totalling 80 flats which have been financed by the Merchant Company Endowments Trust in partnership with Edinburgh Council and Dunedin Canmore Housing Association.

In this way the Company is helping to satisfy the high demand for social housing in Edinburgh and supporting care for the elderly. The Committee currently has plans for more projects of this sort.
