Prevent homelessness in Scotland

Join us and add your name to our call to stop more people becoming homeless in Scotland.

Join our call to prevent homelessness

Scotland has some of the strongest protections in in the world for people experiencing homelessness. But while we made huge progress on reducing levels of homelessness in the past, the cost of living crisis is pushing more and more people closer to homelessness.

All too often, people at risk of homelessness in Scotland are unable to get help until it is too late, while emergency measures such as temporary accommodation have often become the default response to someone encountering problems with their housing. That’s why we are campaigning for new measures to prevent homelessness – to stop more people from experiencing the trauma and indignity of homelessness.

 

Why preventing homelessness is so important

More and more people in Scotland are being forced from their homes. In fact, homelessness in Scotland is now at record levels, with 10% more households facing homelessness than last year alone. We have to act now to prevent more people facing homelessness.

1 in 12

people in Scotland have experienced homelessness. That's 8% of the population.

30,724

households are experiencing homelessness. That's the most since records began.

10,000 children

in Scotland are stuck in temporary accommodation.

Scotland Prevention Review Group

The Scotland Homelessness Prevention Review Group was tasked to identify legal duties needed for local authorities and other public bodies to prevent homelessness in Scotland. It was set up by Crisis at the request of the Scottish Government and was chaired by Professor Suzanne Fitzpatrick of Heriot-Watt University.
