Rural Homeless Must not Become Second Class Citizens

People facing homelessness in rural Scotland should not be allowed to become second class citizens. That was the warning today from Shelter Scotland responding to the findings of the Scottish Parliament’s Rural Housing Inquiry.

The report shows that an estimated 29% of housing association lets in rural areas go to homeless people. This demonstrates that people on waiting lists continue to get the lion’s share of new homes that become available to let.
