This is a housing emergency
After almost a decade of failure by previous governments to solve the housing emergency, the First Minister has a choice: choose more failure or choose our futures. Sign the open letter to Humza Yousaf today: tell him we are living in a housing emergency, and he needs to declare it.
Signing a petition or joining our mailing list takes less than a minute and can lead to lasting changes.
Tell the First Minister we are living in a housing emergency, and we need him to declare it.
Social housing ends homelessness. Add your name if you agree
Home is a basic human right. Add your name to show you won't stand by while anyone in Scotland is homeless.
We’re here for everyone, but only with your support
What we're fighting for
The current housing system is not working. Too many people do not have a permanent place to call home or are living in unaffordable or unsuitable homes.

The housing emergency
Making a difference together
More than 19,500 of you signed our Build Scotland’s Future petition calling for 37,100 social homes to be built in the next five years. This collective outcry to build the social homes that Scotland needs has been heard. The Scottish Government has now pledged to build 38,500 social homes over the next five years.
Scotland has long been in the grip of a housing emergency leading to widening housing inequality and an assault on the fundamental human right to a safe home.
This pledge to build more social homes is just the beginning. We'll continue to keep the pressure on with you by our side. We need to see details of how the government will accelerate the building programme in the next five years and support renters during our recovery from the pandemic.
