Policy and practice to end homelessness

Scotland has some of the most progressive homelessness rights in the world. But often people still find it hard to get the help they need to prevent or end their homelessness. 

Crisis works with the Scottish Government, Scottish Parliament, local authorities and other organisations across Scotland to make sure that homelessness is high on the political agenda and to offer strategic and practical solutions to tackling homelessness.

In the run up to 2016 Scottish parliamentary election, we published our Manifesto to End Homelessness. This set out our key priorities for the current Scottish Parliament. We are building on this work to develop a plan to end homelessness in Scotland.

We also work with the UK Government in Westminster on social security and other reserved issues that affect people facing homelessness in Scotland.

To read some of our Scottish policy responses use the Scotland filter in our briefings and responses section.

Our Scotland Homelessness Monitor provides more detail about homelessness in Scotland.
