Shelter Scotland launched a very successful Manifesto for Homes for the 2016 Holyrood elections. We have managed to push housing further up the agenda for all parties in Scotland. We were delighted for example that all major parties in Scotland included housing in their manifestos and committed to increased affordable house building targets.
There is still a lot to do and we are continuing to campaign for housing and homelessness to be a top priority for both national and local government.
Our Homelessness: Far From Fixed campaign is calling on the Scottish Government to introduce a new National Homelessness strategy and we will also be publishing a manifesto for homes for the local government elections in 2017.
