New plan to tackle Scottish homelessness proposed

rough sleeping in Glasgow

Today a Committee of Scottish Government MSPs has proposed a new plan to tackle homelessness in Scotland. Among the recommendations are for Scotland to adopt a Housing First accommodation model, something that Glasgow City Mission has been championing. 

Housing First prioritises a homeless person's unconditional right to a permanent home, without them having to go through several levels of temporary accommodation first.

Last year, Glasgow City Mission announced that ten flats will be purchased and follow the Housing First model. 

Grant Campbell, Chief Executive of Glasgow City Mission commented on today's report: 

"The report from Local Government and Communities Committee is well researched and has gathered important evidence from many organisations and not least from people with real lived experience of homelessness. I am delighted that City Ambition Network (CAN), Multi-Agency Working, Alliance Commissioning and Housing First are highlighted as making demonstrable impact and I am glad that Glasgow City Mission has played a significant part in all of these initiatives.
