The pathway to prevent and end homelessness for people leaving the armed forces in Scotland
Presented in partnership with Veterans Scotland, this Homeless Network Scotland Member Event is an opportunity to input into the pathway to prevent and end homelessness for people leaving the armed forces in Scotland.
Kevin Gray, CEO of Veterans Housing Scotland and chair of the Veterans Scotland Housing Group and Dr Steve Rolfe, Lecturer in Social Policy at Stirling University, will present the draft report for the first time publicly. This will be followed by a Q&A when the team want to hear your experience of veterans’ homelessness and your views on what needs to be done to address the housing needs of former services personnel.
In 2020 The Scottish Government requested the support of the Veterans Housing Scotland to explore, investigate and recommend a pathway to end homelessness for people leaving service and former service personnel already established in civilian life. The remit and approach of the project includes:
The definitions of homelessness
Transition from service and the barriers to housing
Establishing the experience of other homelessness projects and their impact
Data sources and the availability of accurate information
