Are you with us?

We’re fighting for a Scotland where everyone has a place to feel safe. Where no one chooses between food and rent, and no one sleeps on the streets. We all have the right to a good home and we want to make it the law. Are you with us?

Find out more

We help over half a million people a year struggling with bad housing or homelessness - and we campaign to prevent it in the first place. You can be part of that change.


Why we campaign

It is our job to find out where there are housing and homelessness issues across Scotland and to identify solutions. We campaign for change across the whole of Scotland.

Meet the Policy Advocacy team

We are the Policy Advocacy team, and we're responsible for developing Shelter Scotland's policy positions. We chat to our advisors to hear about the issues around homelessness and bad housing that are being seen in our services, and use these experiences to inform our policy work. We then meet with decision makers, respond to consultations, and produce reports to advocate for the changes we want to see. All this feeds into our campaigns work, on both a local and national level.
