Social housing ends homelessness

The facts are clear – social housing is the route out of homelessness.

More affordable homes mean that everyone, not just the lucky few, can have a safe place to call home.

The Scottish Government just declared a housing emergency; we need to hold them to account and tell them to build more social homes, now


We exist to defend the right to a safe home and fight the devastating impact the housing emergency has on people and society. We believe that home is everything.
