Scottish Parliamentary Election 2011 - Shelter Scotland's Assessment of the Party Manifestos

Summary

Shelter Scotland has undertaken an assessment of the party manifestos from the perspective that:

  • Sufficient affordable housing must be provided for those most in need in places where people can thrive;
  • There is a continuing need to help homeless people and seek to prevent homelessness, for example, by providing support to vulnerable people;
  • Investment is needed in the existing housing stock to tackle problems of substandard housing, major disrepair and fuel poverty.

The focus is on the manifestos of the Scottish parties which were represented in the last parliament from 2007 to 2011.
