Homelessness statistics show a further fall of 4%
The latest homelessness statistics for Scotland show a further fall of 4% compared to the previous year.
Homeless Action Chief Executive Robert Aldridge said: ‘The continuing drop in homelessness is of course welcome. However the signs are that the quick benefits achieved through the housing options approach are beginning to tail off.
There are also signs that in some parts of Scotland temporary accommodation is coming under extreme pressure. This is especially disturbing since the imminent changes to temporary accommodation funding linked to Universal Credit have not yet come into force. Local authorities are facing testing times as budgets tighten especially in relation to temporary accommodation.’
