Organisations call for better support from Scottish Minister

Shelter Scotland wants to see strengthened powers to ensure all homeless families and single people can access the support they need to manage and keep a tenancy. Under the charity’s proposals, an assessment of what support is appropriate would be made at the time someone registers as homeless. They would then be directed towards relevant advice and support, either before, during or after a move into a new home, depending on their circumstances.

The organisations sent a letter with their urgent call to Mr Neil. These included Barnardos Scotland, Capability Scotland, Impact Arts, One Parent Families Scotland, Quarriers, Quarriers VIP group, SAMH, Scotland’s Commissioner for Children and Young People, Scottish Churches Housing Action, Scottish Youth Parliament, Tenants Information Service and Veterans Scotland.
