The wonder and possibility of a new home is unlike anything else. A new home brings with it the security and stability we all need to survive, and gives us hope for a better tomorrow.
Tens of thousands of families across Scotland do not have a sufficient place to call home. Building the social homes that Scotland needs will change this and lead us down a path to a brighter future.
It’s time to turn the pressure up: Tell your MSPs that social housing is important to voters
Homelessness is rising. There are record numbers of households in temporary accommodation this winter. More and more people are battling to keep a roof over their heads.
Over 18,000 of you have already signed our petition calling for these homes to be built. Now let’s step it up.
By writing to your MSPs – you're letting them know that social housing matters to voters and you're helping to deliver the homes Scotland needs.
How can social homes change lives?
Manageable rents mean you don't have to go into debt in order to live, or choose between paying the rent and buying food. It takes away the worry of insecure housing, giving you somewhere to settle and move on to bigger and better things with your life.
My kids would finally have their own space which would really help their mental and physical health. I could finally start to pursue my aspirations without having to spend all my time fighting to give us a decent and permanent place to live.
