Temporary Accommodation Guidance

By: Shelter Scotland  Published: January 2011

Guidance on temporary accommodation standards by Shelter Scotland and CIH Scotland. 


  • The guidance aims to provide temporary accommodation providers with a benchmark to aim for in terms of quality, location and management of properties being let to homeless households.
  • This guidance, which is advisory rather than statutory, has drawn on the experience of staff managing temporary accommodation and the views of people who have lived - or are currently living - in temporary housing.
