Affordable Housing Need in Scotland Post-2021

Scotland can start reducing housing need, tackle child poverty and kick-start the economic recovery by delivering 53,000 affordable homes over the next Parliament (2021-2026).

We are calling on all political parties to commit to a capital investment programme of £3.4 billion over 5 years, ensuring that social housing is at the heart of its social justice and child poverty programmes and Scotland’s recovery from Coronavirus.

Now, more than ever, Scotland needs this new programme to help rebuild our economy, create jobs and reinvigorate our communities.
