Housing Rights Defenders

Get organised in your local community and play a vital role in fighting for a Scotland where everyone has a safe place to call home.

Here at Shelter Scotland we recognise that we cannot end the housing emergency alone, we also need local people to have a voice and the power to create change. 

Become part of a new network of Housing Rights Defenders! You will be supported to take action in your local community, tackle the housing issues that matter most to you and fight for a Scotland where everyone has a safe place to call home.

We help you campaign your way. Your Local Community Organiser is here to provide the support you need to create change in your community.​

Campaigning is about getting change and making your community, your country or the world a better place. Most importantly, campaigning is a way to tackle issues that matter to you.

We want local communities around Scotland to play a vital role in campaigning to see a Scotland where everyone has a safe, affordable home.

We are working in Edinburgh and Glasgow to build up a community of housing rights defenders and want to support you to take local action in a way that is meaningful to you.
