Housing for older people, those with disabilities and those with supported tenancies is provided by both public authorities and housing associations. In addition, programmes such as Supporting People have helped to meet specific housing needs of older and other vulnerable people to give them the opportunity to continue to live in their own homes. Housing for people with varying needs is currently mainly classified as very sheltered, sheltered, medium dependency, adapted for wheelchair and ambulant disabled, although figures can vary from year to year as dwellings may be adapted to suit the particular needs of tenants, or re-classified by providers.

Housing for older people, those with disabilities and those with supported tenancies is currently provided by Local Authorities through the Housing Statistics Annual Return. In previous years data was also provided by Scottish Homes (until 2005) and Housing Associations (until 2013).

Information on supported housing provided by Housing Associations is now collected each year by the Scottish Housing Regulator, and is avialable on their Charter dataset collection.
