Shelter Scotland 3-point plan

By: Shelter Scotland  Published: June 2020


We are calling for a 3 point plan to make sure people who are homeless or at risk of homelessness are protected both during and after the pandemic. 

Summary

At the start of the pandemic lockdown period the Scottish Government moved quickly and positively to make sure people sleeping on our streets were put into safe emergency accommodation and most tenants were protected from eviction until the end of September.

We would like the Scottish Government to build on this progress and continue to protect people by:

  1. Building more affordable homes
  2. Protecting people affected by the pandemic from eviction during and post pandemic
  3. Empowering people to guarantee their right to a safe home
