Update from Shelter Scotland

Want to campaign for more social housing?

Housing charity Shelter Scotland is looking for people with personal experience of long waits for social housing or transfers to more suitable social housing to help them campaign for a new building programme.

The charity hopes to be able to give a platform to people to speak out about the impact of having no choice but to live in expensive or inadequate accommodation.

This would include people who are currently living in privately rented accommodation, over-crowded accommodation, living with parents, living in housing that doesn’t meet a physical disability or sensory impairment or living in temporary accommodation having made a homelessness application.

While first-hand stories tend to be the most powerful the charity would also like to make contact with community representatives who can speak out on behalf of local groups. Please share this appeal with anyone you know who you think might be interested in taking part. The contact at Shelter Scotland to find out more is [email protected].
