Campaigning #stillfighting

For 50 years we have fought to make positive change by using the insight gathered from our advice and support work. We use this information to develop our policy, research and campaigning activity. We will continue to fight for long-term and sustainable solutions to homelessness and bad housing in Scotland. We’ll do this by campaigning nationally and locally and by engaging local communities, so that we can make sure housing and homelessness are a top priority.

Shelter Scotland’s Community Hub in Glasgow held a grass root community engagement event in the Hidden Gardens, Pollokshields. People from the area were invited to come and talk to Shelter Scotland staff and enjoy the activities such as face painting, storytelling, playing the Shelter Scotland ‘snakes and ladders’ game to understand what can cause homelessness and listen to live music from local musicians.

The community event not only marked Shelter Scotland's 50th anniversary and raised awareness about their services and campaigning activity, it also engaged with charities from the local community who came along and set up their own stalls and activities for the event.
