Giroscope is currently following current government guidelines in relation to coronavirus.

Our priority remains to support our tenants, volunteers, staff and the wider community in staying safe during this time.

Our housing service is fully operational and our office is open. 

Our volunteer programme is in the process of opening back up, but will have to operate on a reduced scale for the immediate future.

Please do not hesitate to get in contact if you have any worries or concerns … or just want a chat! 

Hull City Council have a coronavirus helpline, which you may find useful – you can find more details here


Giroscope, a registered charity, buys and renovates empty properties in west Hull to provide affordable homes for those in housing need.

Our properties are finished to a high standard, are energy efficient and let at affordable rents. We encourage prospective tenants to be involved in the renovation of their homes and house many of our volunteers – this helps to give people a feeling of ownership of their property. We do not charge deposits, rent in advance or non-returnable fees – making our properties available to all. We further provide security of tenure which helps to bring stability to our community.

We also do a lot more!
