Shelter Scotland '2012 Commitment' Briefing

The '2012 commitment' will end the 'priority/non-priority' distinction. The removal of priority distinction means that local authorities will have a duty to house all those who are found to be homeless from 1 January 2013 and to provide the same level of service to all homeless people. The 'target' then is the date when that change takes place and once it has happened it will be in place continuously.
