Open Door Accommodation Project is a youth charity that has been working for over thirty years with some of West Lothian’s most vulnerable young people at risk of homeless. Many may have been affected by family breakdown, are care leavers, have been physically, emotionally or sexually abused, have poor mental health or well-being, are socially isolated and will struggle to find or sustain employment due to lack of qualifications or experience.

We offer two housing services- hostel accommodation with ten units in the Craigshill area of Livingston, and a supported flats service offering young people accommodation in flats across West Lothian. We also offer a Community Outreach project which encompasses one to one support, an employability service, a volunteering project and health and wellbeing service.

Organisation aims and objectives

To secure the establishment of emergency hostel accommodation supported accommodation and tenancy support to young people between the ages of 16 to 25 years within West Lothian.
